EU-Georgia Association Council, 6 September 2022


Main results

The 7th meeting of the EU-Georgia Association Council took place in Brussels and was co-chaired by the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, and the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili.

Today’s meeting is a proof of the unwavering EU support to Georgia’s territorial integrity, and has also shown that our relations have made a qualitative leap as Georgia is now firmly on a European path. I very much look forward to seeing Georgia advance on this path. We hope that Georgia’s political forces will seize this historic opportunity and step up their efforts to obtain EU candidate status and advance closer to the EU.

Josep Borrell, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy

The meeting discussed EU-Georgia's relations, against the background of Georgia's application for EU membership. Concerning this matter the High Representative underlined that now that Georgia has decided to embark on the EU path, it is fundamental to work on the delivery. The discussion then focused on political dialogue and reform, economic and sectoral cooperation, trade and trade-related matters, and peaceful conflict resolution.

At the end of the meeting, EU and Georgia issued a joint press statement summarising the Association Council.
