  • Communique of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia

    On the 5th of June, 2017 Georgia and the Kingdom of Belgium are marking the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.

    Since the restoration of Georgia’s independence, the ties between the two countries have developed into extensive and fruitful collaboration. While sharing the core European values, both states have achieved close political cooperation and continue to coordinate their policies on a wide range of international issues.

    Partnership with Belgium – a host country of European and Euro-Atlantic institutions – has been particularly important for Georgia due to Belgium’s special place in Europe’s recent history as one of the founding members of the EU and NATO and a loyal supporter of European integration.

    In this respect, Belgium’s contribution to advancing Georgia`s relations both with the EU and NATO to a qualitatively new level as well as support to Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, should be underlined.

    Furthermore, Georgia and Belgium are holding regular political dialogue at various levels. As a latest example of high level bilateral visits, recently Georgia had an honour to host the Chairman of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives H.E. Siegfried Bracke and Belgian MPs.

    Importantly, people to people contacts are expending too. Brussels is often a host to Georgian artists and cultural events, allowing Belgian public and aficionados of art and music to get better acquainted with the contemporary Georgian art in all its diversity.

    The last 25 years have laid solid foundation of bilateral relations between Georgia and the Kingdom of Belgium, which can only be further developed and strengthened. The two states will continue working closely in order to ensure peace, stability and security on the European continent.
