Salome Zourabichvili: We need support from our partners in order to persuade Russia that Georgia's Euro-integration course is irreversible

We need support from our partners in order to persuade and remind Russia that Georgia's Euro-integration course is irreversible, - President Salome Zourabichvili said at the press conference held together with the President of Latvia.

Salome Zourabichvili thanked the President of Latvia for the unwavering support for Georgia and noted that the countries have long friendship.

"Thank you, Mr. President, for the support we have received in the process of joining NATO and the EU, as wel as for sharing your experience, which is so important for Georgia. 30 years ago, the tragedy of April 9 occurred in Georgia, which led to the restoration of independence. That's how our struggle started. It was difficult to imagine 30 years ago that Latvia would become a member of the EU and NATO and that Georgia would be so close to the open door of the EU and NATO. This trajectory of Georgia was determined by the support of our loyal friends and reliable partners," the President of Georgia said.

According to Salome Zourabichvili, Georgia will declare at the Batumi conference dedicated to the 10th anniversary of Eastern Partnership in July how Georgia is going to make progress for the EU and NATO integration.
