Minister Jacek Czaputowicz to visit Georgia and Moldova
On 11 and 12 July, Minister Czaputowicz will pay a visit to Georgia and Moldova. In Batumi, he will participate in the 16th edition of the conference “Georgia’s European Ways,” which this year will be dedicated entirely to the 10th anniversary of the Eastern Partnership. In Chisinau, he will meet with representatives of Moldovan authorities and Parliament.
Poland, as an initiator and co-founder of the Eastern Partnership, has been actively participating in the debate on the future shape of the Eastern dimension of the European Union policy. During the conference in Batumi, Minister Czaputowicz will present Poland’s assessment of the Partnership and proposals regarding the development of this initiative.
Minister Jacek Czaputowicz will also hold meetings with Georgia’s President Salome Zourabichvili and Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani. These meetings are part of an intense political dialogue between Warsaw and Tbilisi that reaffirm the very good state of Polish-Georgian relations. Minister Jacek Czaputowicz will also meet with Grigol Vashadze, Chairman of the United National Movement, Georgia’s largest opposition party.
Minister Czaputowicz will then visit the Republic of Moldova, where a government coalition has recently been formed out of the new parliamentary majority. He is scheduled to meet with President Igor Dodon, Prime Minister Maia Sandu, Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu and Speaker of Parliament Zinaida Greceanii. The purpose of his visit is to send a strong message to the Moldovan authorities about the soundness of maintaining a pro-European orientation in foreign policy, to exchange experiences relating to the Eastern Partnership on its 10th anniversary, and to address current bilateral issues.
