European Council President Charles Michel met on Tuesday Georgia's political leaders in Tbilisi, following the signing of an agreement the day before between the ruling party and several opposition parties. The deal was proposed by the EUCO President after several weeks of mediation.
The crisis is over, I want to thank you all for your commitment and courage to put the differences aside in the interest of Georgia, EUCO President said.
He also stressed that the agreement was reached “in a truly European spirit and takes you towards your Euro-Atlantic future”.
During his visit to Tbilisi, he met with President Salome Zourabichvili and Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili.
Michel highlighted that the agreement was not a finishing line but a starting point for all political actors in Georgia to work towards consolidating the country's democracy and implementing reforms.
"These reforms are what Georgia needs. They will ensure your citizens' demands are better met, and will also open up the path to deeper cooperation between Georgia and the EU. The EU is Georgia's strongest partner," EU CO President said in Tbilisi.
