Georgia is moving in the right direction. Such a statement Austrian Federal Chancellor made at a joint press-conference with Prime Minister of the country.
“We talked about the topic that worries and scares us all for almost a year now, we are talking about the war in Ukraine. People are in dire situation, the war is getting more and more severe and the suffering of people is increasing.
Georgia is really in a special situation, the Prime Minister also drew attention to this. The Ambassador of Georgia in Austria always points to the special geopolitical situation of Georgia.
Part of Georgia’s territory is occupied, Russian military is stationed on the territory of your country, and this automatically, by itself, brings the reality that the policy implemented by Georgia must be expressed in a different reality.
That is why I can say that I am glad that Georgia supported all the financial sanctions imposed by the European Union, it is really not easy, because the pressure on Georgia is very high. A very large flow of Georgian refugees came from Russia and for the Government of Georgia along with everything, this is also a very big challenge, especially in such a difficult period.
However, at the same time, I would like to give you a guarantee from my side and say that Georgia is going in the right direction and I promise to help you on the path of Georgia’s European integration”, - said the Chancellor.
