“My warmest congratulations to Georgia and all the people of Georgia on Independence Day.The European Union remains unwavering in its support of Georgia’s independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity.In these difficult times, we stand united in solidarity with Ukraine.And we stand together with Georgia and cherish the deep bonds that exist between us. Bonds that we wish to see growing stronger,” EU Ambassador to Georgia Carl Hartzell stated on Thursday.
He said that on March 3, the Government of Georgia applied for EU membership, “which reflects the aspirations of an overwhelming majority of its population.”
“Georgia has made a choice founded on its historical values. Now is the moment for Georgia to act decisively to demonstrate its determination on this European path,” said the ambassador. Georgia has already submitted a self-assessment questionnaire and is expecting a report by the EU in June on its candidate country status.
