Georgian PM welcomes Turkey’s support

Georgia’s prime minister praised Turkey for Ankara’s “solid support” of the Caucasus country’s integrity and sovereignty.

Following a meeting with Fatma Ceren Yazgan, Turkey’s ambassador to Georgia, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili “expressed his gratitude to the Turkish side for the solid support of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia,” a statement from the Georgian Prime Ministry said.

Garibashvili also pointed out the “significant contribution” of Yazgan in developing the relations between the two countries, the statement added.

The meeting focused on “the strategic partnership between the two countries and the positive trend of bilateral relations,” it noted.

“One of the topics discussed by the dignitaries was the opening of the Turkish sales market and import of high-quality medication with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) to Georgia, which will significantly and quickly drop prices on the pharmaceutical products in Georgia,” it added.

Garibashvili and Yazgan highlighted that “current regional projects between Georgia and Turkey serve as a vivid example of effective strategic cooperation, solid development and reliable partnership, which thereby leads to greater economic freedom, security and sustainability.”

The Georgian prime minister noted that effective regional cooperation with neighboring countries is a road leading to security, stability and sustainable development.

“Readiness was expressed towards further deepening cooperation, including towards political and economic directions,” the statement said. -Agencies
