Diaconescu voices support for Georgia’s NATO accession

Foreign Minister Cristian Diaconescu assured his Georgian counterpart Grigol Vashadze, on Friday, that Romania maintains its standing related to Georgia as to observing the territorial integrity and the support of aspirations towards NATO and the EU accession. “We have expressed our availability to support Georgia, further on, within this process. Concretely, there will be, over the forthcoming period, several cooperation projects in relation to the European integration and the accession into the North – Atlantic Alliance, organized by the specialist departments from the two Ministries of Foreign Affairs”, Diaconescu informed in a joint press statement, with his Georgian counterpart, in Bucharest. In his turn, Vashdaze said that Tbilisi would welcome any advice from Bucharest as to the integration process within the structures of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Diaconescu added that the energy supply topic would become a key element within the dialogue between Romania and Georgia, the two countries remaining to approach this issue within the regional dialogue as well.

Vashadze had a meeting in Bucharest with Senate Chair, Mircea Geoana, as well. “The fact that the Black Sea separates us results in Georgia being not only a state neighboring the Black Sea, but one of the most important neighbors of Romania in geopolitical terms and as a bridge between the Caucasian region and the Central Asia”, Geoana underlined.
