Jan Lipavsky’s visit to Georgia is taking place during the Czech Republic’s presidency of the Council of the European Union.
“We can expect any scenario from Russia, and therefore it is important to support Georgia so that all partners focus on the stability of Georgia and increase its defense capability,” Lipavsky said.
He noted that “Putin’s terrible aggression has shown that more assistance needs to be found for the countries affected by Putin’s aggression, Georgia and Ukraine, which seek to join the European Union.”
According to him, the Czech Republic supports Georgia’s efforts to move towards the European Union and Euro-Atlantic structures.
“Georgia needs to continue effective reforms and, importantly, fulfill the 12-point requirements put forward by the European Commission in order to obtain candidate status. Georgia must make efforts to reduce polarization in the political spectrum and make efforts to create strong democratic, strong democratic institutions – these are key issues,” Lipavsky said.
