Salome Zourabichvili meets the President of ECHR

Salome Zourabichvili met the President of the European Court of Human Rights [ECHR], Robert Spano.

Robert Spano noted Georgia made progress over the last 10 years despite challenges. The President of Georgia highlighted the importance of depolarization and fulfilment of the EC recommendations on the path of EU integration.

They stressed that the war in Ukraine threatens peace, stability and human rights in Europe and the world.

“Prior to Ukraine, Georgia was the victim of Russian aggression. The ECHR is interested in holding Russia responsible for the attack against sovereign countries leading to the gravest military crimes, aggression, and violation of human rights and international norms”, - added Spano.

The parties also underlined the ECHR’s role in strengthening democratic institutions and human rights in Georgia.
