Thank you for your letter of 20 June, addressed to President of the European Council Charles Michel regarding the EU membership status for Georgia. The President has asked me to reply to your letter.
Let me stress that the European Council adopted the Council conclusions on 24 June, expressing the readiness to grant the status of candidate country to Georgia once the priorities specified in the Commission’s opinion on Georgia’s membership application have been addressed. The European Council clearly recognized the European perspective of Georgia and reiterated that the future of the country and its citizens lay with the EU.
The EU remains committed to continue to further strengthening ties and deepening its partnership to support Georgia, in line with our Association Agreement including supporting human rights and people with disabilities.
