  • Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia regarding the NATO Summit in Madrid

    The Madrid Summit decisions, including both their practical and political dimensions, are of paramount importance to Georgia. 
    In view of the challenges facing us, the further development of NATO-Georgia practical cooperation and the deepening of the political dialogue are  essential for the improvement of regional security. We hail the approval by the Allies of a set of tailored support measures for Georgia. The document envisages concrete steps to further enhance Georgia’s defence capabilities and to achieve NATO’s more effective engagement in this process. This new instrument, along with the Substantial NATO-Georgia Package, will create a greater scope for bringing Georgia’s defence and security sector closer to NATO standards and to strengthen the country’s defence capabilities.  
    Georgia welcomes the adoption of a new strategic concept by the NATO Summit in Madrid. The new concept duly reflects the recent geopolitical shifts and the Alliance’s long-term response to the emerging threats. It needs to be highlighted that the new strategic concept gives due consideration to the topical importance of the Open Door Policy and to Georgia’s membership perspective, in line with the 2008 Bucharest Summit Decision, as well as  to the fundamental principle that each sovereign country has the right to choose its own security arrangements, without external interference in any form.
    Paramount importance needs to be attached to NATO’s unequivocal support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as confirmed repeatedly in several  documents adopted by the Madrid Summit. 
    Georgia highly appraises the Madrid Summit decisions to further strengthen the security of the NATO Member States, as well as to ensure the Black Sea security.  
    We also welcome the Madrid Summit’s decision regarding the enlargement of the Alliance. We congratulate Finland and Sweden on being invited to join the Alliance. Their accession will make Europe safer and the Alliance – stronger. Being the actual implementation of the Open Door Policy, this process is essentially important for Georgia, as an aspirant country.  We also hail the decision of the Alliance to continue to support Ukraine. 
    Georgia places a particularly high value on the messages voiced during the North Atlantic Council’s meeting signaling the Member States’ firm support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as for its Euro-Atlantic integration. 
    The decisions made regarding Georgia during the Summit will contribute to improving Georgia’s security and defence capabilities and will bring the country closer to its ultimate goal – NATO Membership.

  • ​The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia hails the European Council’s decision regarding Georgia
    The European Council adopted an important historic decision on granting an EU membership perspective to Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine.

    With the decision of the European Council, the EU leaders have confirmed that Georgia’s future lies within the European Union and that Georgia will definitely become a member of the organization.

    According to the decision of the European Council, Georgia, once a range of recommendations are fulfilled will be automatically granted a candidate status, while Ukraine and Moldova have received a candidate status on condition of complying with the recommendations given to them.
    By awarding Georgia an EU membership perspective, the EU has recognized Georgia as a European country and has acknowledged the progress made in Georgia-EU relations in the past few years. Indeed, this result would have been hardly imaginable without the efforts and reforms implemented in the country over the recent years.  
    The decision of the European Council takes on a particular importance in view of the challenges that threaten the system of western value and European security, of which Georgia is an integral part.
    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomes the European Council’s decision and the EU leaders’ support in this process.
    We believe that this is a historic moment for Georgia and from now on, the door to Europe is definitely open to our country.
    Being committed to common values, Georgia, together with the EU, will continue to pursue an ambitious reform agenda leading to Georgia’s final integration with the EU.
    Georgia will work actively to meet the recommendations to achieve the deserved candidate status as soon as possible and to regain its rightful place in the European family.
