Today and tomorrow, President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Eiki Nestor is in Georgia and attends the celebrations dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Georgia’s the First Democratic Republic in Tbilisi.
Eiki Nestor said that the relations between Georgia and Estonia are very good and close. “We appreciate the achievements of Georgia highly, and with the 100-years-old state prosperity and success on their way to the European Union,” Nestor emphasized. “We support our good friend Georgia in carrying out reforms by sharing our experience of open elections and developing of e-government.”
Nestor believes that Georgia’s visa freedom with the European Union is an important landmark in the country’s political and economic integration with the EU. In his opinion, it is also important to continue to work for achieving NATO membership.
“Estonia supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia, and continues to do everything in its power to ensure that the problems of the occupied territories of Georgia are not forgotten by the international community when other crises emerge,” Nestor said.
Georgia has invited the heads of state and government and the speakers of parliaments from many countries to its 100th-anniversary celebrations in Tbilisi.
