Georgia: We attach importance to cooperation with Turkey


Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said on Monday that his country attaches great importance to relations and cooperation with Turkey, a strategic partner.

This came in his speech during an event organized by the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the capital, Tbilisi.


Garibashvili pointed out that there is a strategic partnership between his country and Turkey, pointing out that he made an official visit to Turkey in early June.

He stated that the two countries decided, during their meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to hold a high-level Strategic Cooperation Council meeting at the end of 2021.

He added, “I had a successful meeting with President Erdogan, and on his initiative, the meeting will be held at the end of this year.”

He explained that Russia continues its policy of occupying the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which represent 20 percent of Georgia’s territory.


He stressed that the main objective of his country’s foreign policy for the next ten years is to end the occupation.
