Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani says that the Georgian government will take all steps required for the country to take its ‘historic place’ in the European family, responding to the moves by Ukraine and Georgia to become the members of the EU in an accelerated manner.
"I want to assure the public that we, in agreement with our partners, will definitely take consistent and courageous steps. Georgia will be where it historically belongs. Our people will see this very soon,” Zalkaliani stated earlier today.
He said that the Georgian PM had a conversation with the European Commissioner for Enlargement yesterday on Georgia’s prospects for EU membership.
“I had a conversation yesterday with the EU High Representative, Mr. Borrell on the same topic,” Zalkaliani said, noting that he also spoke with his Moldovan colleague on the issue.
Ukraine applied for EU membership earlier this week amid hostilities in the country.
The European Integration Committee of the Georgian parliament has also drafted a resolution on Georgia’s EU membership in an accelerated manner.
