As part of his visit to Strasbourg, on 13 April 2016, Georgian Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze met Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjørn Jagland.

At the meeting, the Georgian Foreign Minister welcomed the CoE Secretary General’s forthcoming visit to Georgia scheduled for May 2016, as well as the CoE Action Plan for Georgia 2016-2019, the presentation of which will be held on 9 May 2016, within the framework of Thorbjørn Jagland’s visit to Tbilisi.

Discussions during the meeting with the Secretary General focused on important issues relating to co-operation between Georgia and the Council of Europe; special attention was paid to the situation in Georgia’s occupied regions.

The Minister provided the Secretary General with information on the recent developments in Georgia’s occupied territories, including on the statements of representatives of the Tskhinvali occupation regime regarding the possible referendum in the occupied Tskhinvali region on accession to the Russian Federation. It was emphasised that such plans, as well as the so-called treaties signed with the separatist regimes and the process of their implementation represent further steps towards annexation of Georgia’s occupied territories.

Talking points also included the difficult human rights situation in the occupied regions.

The Minister thanked the Secretary General for the established practice involving adopting annual consolidated reports of the CoE Secretary General on the conflict in Georgia and underlined the necessity of maintaining Georgia atop the political agenda of the Council of Europe.

Mikheil Janelidze updated the Secretary General on the ongoing and implemented reforms in the areas of democratic processes and human rights protection highlighting the efforts towards deepening co-operation with the Council of Europe.

Thorbjørn Jagland expressed his gratitude for Georgia’s valuable contribution to the process of drafting the CoE Action Plan for Georgia and expressed the hope that his visit to Georgia, together with the President of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and the Bulgarian Foreign Minister will have a successful outcome.

The Speaker, David Usupashvili met with the Spanish Foreign Minister, José Manuel García-Margallo. The parties discussed bilateral relations and cooperation, EU and NATO aspiration of Georgia, visa liberalization, EUAA and DCFTA.

As Mr. Minister stated, Spain supports EU and NATO aspiration of Georgia. The parties spoke about economic relations as well. After the meeting, the Speaker noted that Spain once more confirmed support to Georgia in various directions. 

“Spain once more expressed significant commitment to partnership in all the issues – economic cooperation, political cooperation, security aspects. We were given the guarantee that Spain will not only support visa liberalization but will be one of the active representatives of EU, supporting approximation of Georgia. Spain, as NATO member state, plays an important role in decision-makings under the aegis of NATO. We widely discussed prospects of bilateral relations. I am glad that concrete works are being implemented on various Governmental levels to attract more investments, for mutually interesting business-projects and these ideas will be soon successfully finalized. We spoke about both of us, Georgians and Spain to be the representatives of the Mediterranean civilization. As you know, Georgia and Spain have many things in common, not only historical names – “Iberia” etc. We also spoke about the time when Georgians will play football as Spanish do. We said farewell to Spanish friends hoping that one day they will play Rugby as we do”.
