Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili on Monday announced her intention to present the signatures collected through her "Our Voice to Europe" campaign to diplomats from EU countries on Wednesday.
The diplomatic representatives are scheduled to convene in the coming days, with a crucial decision regarding Georgia [its EU candidacy] expected on December 14 or 15. The President emphasized that the submission of these signatures was not just a representation of the country's official stance but also a reflection of the voices of the public, including those of immigrants in EU countries.
She noted the campaign aimed to showcase unity among immigrants, whether they are foreigners or citizens, residing in EU nations. Zourabichvili also expressed anticipation for the attendance of diplomats from EU countries at the event, signaling a message of unity.
“Invitations have been extended to representatives from various levels of the Georgian government, including prime ministers and foreign ministers who have played roles in Georgia's integration with Europe”, she noted.
The president underscored the importance of consensus, depolarization, and unity for the success of Georgia's European path. While acknowledging that immediate unanimity on all issues was unlikely, she stressed the need to set aside differences temporarily and rally around a shared objective.
