The Georgian PM also said that the two countries still need to untap the economic potential of the Black Sea region.
"The Black Sea offers us unique opportunities to play greater role not only in the development of bilateral relations, but also in deepening of our economic relations with other countries," he said, adding that the European and Euro-Atlantic security "cannot be imagined without security of the Black Sea region," Civil.ge reported.
Bakhtadze then stressed the importance of intensified cooperation between Georgian and Romanian ports, "particularly in light of the fact that we are building a deep sea port in Georgia, which will open up entirely new opportunities for economic cooperation."
