The Marshal of the Senate of the Republic of Poland: "There is a place for Georgia in the European family”

Georgian Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze is paying an official visit to the Republic of Poland.

In the frames of the visit, Mikheil Janelidze met Marshal of the Senate of the Republic of Poland Stanisław Karczewski and Deputy Marshal of the Sejm of the Republic of Poland Ryszard Terlecki.

Talking points included the situation in the EU and generally in Europe and the challenges facing Europe following the referendum in Britain.   It was underlined that at present Europe urgently needs to ensure security in the European space, to strengthen co-operation with partners and to seek new opportunities.  

The Marshal of the Senate underlined that Poland supports Georgia’s European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations and noted that no matter what eventually happens following the Brexit, Europe will continue developing. He expressed his hope that the NATO Summit in Warsaw will take significant decisions not only for the member countries, but for Georgia as well. “We talked about Georgia’s pro-European and pro-NATO aspirations and also about bilateral relations and bilateral co-operation. We also discussed the situation facing Europe following the Brexit and challenges we have to face. But no matter what eventually happens we are positive that there is a place for Georgia in the European family and Poland has supported and will continue to support these aspirations”, Stanisław Karczewski said.          

Mikheil Janelidze in turn underlined Georgia’s readiness to continue its significant contribution to European security, namely, through Georgia’s democratisation, reforms and setting a successful example in the region, as well as through direct military contribution to the EU and NATO missions.   

Discussions also focused on bilateral co-operation in different directions, particularly, in the sphere of defence and in terms of ensuring security in Georgia’s occupied territories. The Georgian Foreign Minister thanked the Polish side for participation in the EU monitoring mission.   

Talking points also included the extremely positive tradition and dynamics of co-operation at the parliamentary level. In this connection, the sides underlined the importance of the Georgian-Polish inter-parliamentary friendship group. Discussions also focused on the upcoming parliamentary elections in Georgia. Mikheil Janelidze noted that the elections will be carried out in compliance with the democratic standards and invited the delegation of the both chambers of the Sejm to observe the process of elections. Stanisław Karczewski underlined that the Senate will observe the process of elections. “We also discussed the upcoming parliamentary elections in Georgia and the Polish side expressed its desire and strong wish the elections process to be fully transparent and fully democratic. And to this end, on the part of the Senate, we will be sending an election observation mission”, Stanisław Karczewski said.       

Mikheil Janelidze thanked the Polish side for Georgia’s support and underlined the close friendly relations between the two countries.

In the framework of the visit, the Minister laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and visited the Warsaw Uprising Museum.
