We are united by our past and the challenges that our citizens and states face - territorial integrity of our countries. I am confident that together we will be able to take very effective steps in this direction. I am pleased that today, as part of the official visit, we will sign an agreement on the establishment of a high-level strategic council between Georgia and Ukraine.

I am sure we will be able to develop our relations, both at the parliamentary and at other levels," Dmitro Razumkov said.
