Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Landsbergis: The progress on the European path depends on Georgia’s determination to implement reforms, overcome the political polarisation
On 2 February, Lithuania’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Gabrielius Landsbergis received the Ambassador of Georgia to Lithuania Salome Shapakidze, who assumed her role as the head of Georgia’s diplomatic mission to Lithuania last year.
The meeting focused on Georgia’s relations with the European Union, the implementation of the steps necessary for Georgia to be granted EU candidate status, and the principles of the EU’s joint foreign and security policy, including full support for Ukraine in the face of Russia’s aggression.
According to Lithuania’s Foreign Minister, Georgia’s main task on the road to European and Euro-Atlantic integration is reinforcing democracy, the rule of law and human rights.
“Lithuania has consistently supported Georgia’s European and Euro-Atlantic integration and is ready to provide all possible political support. However, the progress on the European path depends on the willingness and determination of Georgia’s Government and political forces to end the political polarisation, boost resilience to internal and external threats, and join forces with other countries facing Russian aggression,” Landsbergis said.
