    “Poland’s position regarding respect for Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty within internationally recognised borders is unwavering,” said Minister Czaputowicz following his meeting with the chief of Georgian diplomacy. The minister also announced that on 24 October the Sejm of the Republic of Poland adopted a resolution commemorating the 10th anniversary of Russia’s military aggression against the independent Georgian state.


    “Minister Zalkaliani’s visit today is another proof of friendship between our two peoples,” the minister observed. Their talks served to underline Poland’s support for Georgia in international organisations where the two countries cooperate and its aspirations to join European and Euro-Atlantic structures. “Our position to give Georgia a clear European perspective is unwavering. Poland believes that continuing the process of European integration guarantees long-term stability and economic development on the whole European continent,” Minister Czaputowicz noted. The MFA head also declared that Georgia deserves to become a NATO member because it is the best prepared candidate. He also referred to the NATO Warsaw summit in 2016 and the last NATO summit in Brussels to recall that they have clearly reaffirmed that the doors to NATO remain open for Georgia.


    The ministers also discussed the need to infuse new energy into their bilateral economic cooperation. Minister Czaputowicz underscored Georgia’s significance as Poland’s important and long-term partner in the South Caucasus region. “Poland wants to increase trade exchange specifically of agricultural products, and to support Polish investors in Georgia and the tourism sector,” remarked Poland’s top diplomat.


    Both sides agreed that the development of transportation and logistics links between Poland and the East as part of new transportation corridors passing through Georgia’s territory should be a priority in their mutual relations. The ministers also exchanged views about the situation in the South Caucasus region and in Georgia’s occupied territories – Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

     


    The chiefs of Polish and Georgian diplomacy also inaugurated the 3rd Meeting of the Tbilisi Conference. It serves as a forum for sharing Poland’s experience of its adaptation process with Georgia, an EU associated country, in order to support it in its efforts to forge closer ties with the European structures. “The Tbilisi Conference remains a concrete and tangible instrument by which Poland supports Georgia’s pro-European reforms, and a platform for state administrations to exchange experiences relating to the implementation of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement,” said Minister Czaputowicz. Energy and culture were the themes of the 3rd meeting.
