Georgia will apply to join the EU in 2024: Russia is getting in the way
Georgia recalled the Russian occupation.
Georgia plans to apply for membership in the EU in 2024. The country intends to implement reforms and initiatives that contribute to joining the European Union, Chronicle.info reports with reference to RBC.
& # 171; We have prepared a comprehensive action plan, which contains many initiatives and reforms that will lead to the submission of our application for EU membership in 2024. We will not rest until we become members of the European Union and NATO & # 187 ;, & # 8212; the report says.
According to him, the overwhelming majority of the Georgian population strongly supports this very fate of the country.
At the same time, the Prime Minister noted that Russia is trying to impede the implementation of these intentions.
& # 171; Russia not only occupied 20 percent of the territory of Georgia, & # 8212; he said, & # 8212; but he is also trying to undermine our legitimate desire to join the European and Euro-Atlantic family & # 187 ;.
Garibashvili called on UN member states to & # 171; put an end to the illegal occupation of sovereign Georgian lands by Russia & # 187 ;.
According to him, there is a humanitarian crisis in the occupied Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region, the responsibility for which lies solely with the occupying state.
