Georgian, Finnish FMs Meet in Helsinki
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 9 Apr.'10 / 17:35

Finland is in favor of working “very strongly towards” Association Agreement between EU and Georgia, Alexander Stubb, the Finnish foreign minister, said after meeting with his Georgian counterpart in Helsinki on April 8.

Speaking at joint news conference after the meeting the two ministers said that Georgia-EU relations, as well as issues related with conflicts in Georgia and relations with Russia were discussed.

The Finnish Foreign Ministry said in a press release: “Minister Stubb emphasized the importance of reforms and pointed out that the EU expects Georgia to hold its local elections in May in keeping with the rules of democracy.”

During the press conference the Georgian Foreign Minister was asked about Tbilisi’s position on the Kyrgyz developments, in particular whether Tbilisi thought there was any foreign involvement in those events.

“As far as Georgia is concerned and myself… I do not have any facts, which could possibly prove any foreign involvement into those events,” Vashadze said.

In a statement released on the evening of April 8 the Georgian President’s administration blamed Russia for “roughly interfering” in the internal affairs of Kyrgyzstan and accused Moscow of playing its “geopolitical games at the expense of the Kyrgyz people”.
