How fast Georgia would do its homework in democratic reforms would determine Georgia’s further progress, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė said.

She is paying a two-day working visit to Georgia on May 3-4 as part of her trip to South Caucasus countries.

President Grybauskaitė met with his Georgian counterpart, Mikheil Saakashvili, in Tbilisi on May 3. It was their fifth meeting.

"Lithuania supports Georgia's territorial integrity within the framework of international agreements, and also its Euro-Atlantic integration process. Talking with the Georgian President I underlined that Lithuania was and would be supporting the Georgian nation and was willing to share its experience,” Grybauskaitė said in remarks released by her press office.

“I also noted that how fast Georgia would manage to do its homework in the area of freedom of press, human rights, rule of law, institutional reforms, and fight against corruption, depended on Georgia itself and this would determine Georgia's further progress,” President Grybauskaitė said.

The Lithuanian President, whose country now holds OSCE’s rotating chairmanship, welcomed Georgia’s unilateral non-use of force pledge.

The Georgian President’s administration said that “deepening strategic partnership and economic relations” between two countries, as well as Georgia's integration in Euro-Atlantic structures and cooperation within OSCE were discussed during the meeting between the two Presidents.

“The necessity of return of OSCE Mission [to Georgia] was underlined during the meeting,” the Georgian President’s administration said in a statement.
