President Bronisław Komorowski visits Georgia

President Bronisław Komorowski visits Georgia

 On Tuesday in Batumi President Bronisław Komorowski expressed his opinion that negotiations concerning Georgia’s joining the free trade zone should commence as soon as possible. He said that Poland would like this to happen within the next six months, during its presidency over the EU.


Bronisław Komorowski visited Georgia as part of his six-day visit to the Caucasus. The Polish President, at a press conference organised for him and Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, also remarked that “Poland closely watches the progress of Georgia on its road towards European integration.” “We are interested in this progress and, because of this, we want negotiations between European authorities and Georgia regarding Georgia’s joining the free trade zone to begin as soon as possible," he emphasized.


Komorowski also said that he would like the negotiations to commence soon and that he wishes to see Georgia well prepared to take part in them. “We would like the negotiations to start before Poland ends its tenure of the EU presidency,” he said.


The Polish President added that he is glad that President Saakashvili will participate in the summit of the Eastern Partnership in Warsaw on 29th and 30th September.


On Wednesday, President Bronisław Komorowski and the Polish First Lady laid white and red flowers at Lech and Maria Kaczyński boulevard in Batumi. The President and his wife, Anna, then proceeded from Batumi to Tbilisi.


“Business is the foundation stone of friendship,” the President emphasized in Tbilisi, at the Georgian-Polish economic forum. He encouraged Polish and Georgian companies to invest.


Later, he met with representatives of the civil society and, afterwards, laid a wreath at the monument of those who fell fighting for the territorial integrity of Georgia.


While in Tbilisi, President Bronisław Komorowski also visited the European Union Monitoring Mission and met with its head, General Andrzej Tyszkiewicz. Close to the end of his visit, he also visited the Dzhvari Monastery and Svetitskhoveli Cathedral.
