Davit Zalkaliani: We work in bilateral formats with our European partners and countries where the concerns about asylum seekers are coming from

We work in bilateral formats with our European partners and countries where the concerns about asylum seekers are coming from, - Foreign Minister Davit Zalkaliani said when commenting on the increased number of Georgian asylum seekers in the European Union.

The Minister said that there was a specific plan and expressed hopes that its result would be tangible.

"Visa liberalization is one of the priorities for us. We work in bilateral formats with our European partners and the countries where these concerns come from. We have constant communication with our Swedish partners, as well as with France and Germany. Yesterday I had a very fruitful meeting with the Vice-President of the German Migration and Refugee Service. The positive dynamics in terms of prevention of this problem between the two countries was noted at the meeting. Just recently the deputy commissioner of internal affairs visited Georgia, who presented a joint plan of specific actions and I think this plan will bring significant tangible results not only in relation to France, but also Sweden and Germany. There is a specific plan and I am convinced that implementation of this plan will bring tangible results," Zalkaliani said.
