Georgia will be among the foreign policy issues discussed at the EU-Russia summit in Brussels on December 14-15, EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, told the European Parliament on Tuesday.
“We will continue to engage Russia over Georgia, where Russia still needs to fully implement the commitments it made in the August and September 2008 agreements,” she said while speaking about the upcoming EU-Russia summit before the European parliamentarians in Strasbourg.
During the debates, following Ashton’s opening remarks, MEPs mainly focused on Russia’s internal issues, involving the December 4 parliamentary polls and post-election developments. Polish MEP Marek Migalski thanked Ashton for intending to raise Georgia at the EU-Russia summit.
“In all our discussions with Russia there are number of issues that continue to be raised of which Georgia is clearly one,” Ashton said in his closing remarks during the debates.
