Ambassadors of France and Germany call on political forces to unite and work around the goal of EU membership

The Ambassadors of France and the Federal Republic of Germany, Sheraz Gasri and Peter Fischer, call on the political forces of Georgia to unite around the goal of EU membership and to work together to achieve it.

“In December 2023 the European Union and Georgia have an historic opportunity: candidate-status of Georgia to the European Union. This would be the next step in the long-standing partnership and friendship between Georgia and the European Union, with the goal of EU membership for Georgia.

We call on all political forces in Georgia to unite behind this goal and to work together to achieve it.

In this regard, we welcome the series of recent and future visits from Georgia to EU capitals and EU institutions in Brussels with meetings of Heads of State and Government, various members of government as well as between a broad representation from the Parliaments. Constructive dialogue has a great value.

The EU will continue to stand by Georgia’s side as it progresses towards candidate-status and EU membership”, - reads the joint statement of the Ambassadors.
