 Poland to assist Georgia’s membership in NATO and EU

President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, said that Georgia’s membership in NATO is of vital importance, while speaking to media together with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili who is paying an official visit to Poland.

"It’s no secret that Georgia has a strategically important location not only in Europe but in the world. Georgia’s membership in NATO is very important for all NATO members. I would even say that this is a matter of vital importance,” Duda said.

He spoke about Georgia’s potential membership in the European Union too and said that the EU is a boat and if it wants to move faster, it needs to let new rowers get into the boat.

Margvelashvili and Duda agreed on strengthening cooperation to support Georgia's European and Euro-Atlantic integration ahead of the Eastern Partnership Summit in Brussels later in November.

"Currently Poland is one of the leading states of Central Europe that ensures the security and prosperity of Central Europe through its strength and development. The Georgia-Poland partnership greatly determines the future cooperation between Central and Eastern Europe," Ageda.ge cited Margvelashvili as saying.
