"Poland consistently supports Georgia's aspirations to become a member of the EU and NATO," President Bronislaw Komorowski declared after his meeting with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili in Warsaw on Wednesday.
At a joint press conference after the meeting, the president of Georgia said he hoped that his country would sign an association agreement with the European Union.
President Komorowski expressed his satisfaction that the Georgian president chose Poland as the destination of his first European trip. "For us this is confirmation of Georgia's will for cooperation and its determination in building the best possible path to being included in the European and Euro-Atlantic project," the Polish president underlined.
The most important issue now is for Georgia to sign an association agreement with the EU as soon as possible, and Poland will support these efforts, Bronislaw Komorowski said.
"This has gained importance among other things due to the crisis surrounding Ukraine and in Ukrainian-Russian relations," said the Polish president. The association agreement is "the Western world's best possible response" to the Ukrainian crisis, testifying to "the determination of Western world countries, including Poland," Komorowski added.
Margvelashvili underlined that his country "is unequivocal in its efforts and aspirations to join NATO and in its European aspirations as well."
He thanked the Poles for "many years of an unequivocal, stable and principled partnership stance" towards Georgia. "When Georgia looks towards Europe it knows it has a faithful friend there to count on, in both complicated and everyday situations," the Georgian president said.
The two presidents also discussed further development of economic cooperation between Poland and Georgia. (PAP)
