Tbilisi. The tenth sitting on the EU-Georgia Associated Agreement with the aim of coordinating the text of the document will be held on June 28 in Brussels, deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia David Jalagania stated at the briefing on Monday, June 25.
According to the deputy minister, three fourth of the text of the Associated Agreement have been factually coordinated by the parties.
"The dialogue is held successfully. Relations between EU and Georgia will enter the higher level from the point of view of political and economic integration after the Agreement comes into force", Jalagania stressed.
At the talks the Georgian delegation will be headed by deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia Tornike Gordadze.
The previous sitting on the Associated Agreement was held in March 2012 in Tbilisi.
After the Agreement comes in to force, it will replace acting bilateral agreements on EU-Georgia partnership and cooperation.
The Council of Ministers of EU 27 countries approved frames of talks and issued the European Commission the mandate for holding talks on signing bilateral associated agreements between EU and Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
The first plenary session was held in July 2010 in Batumi. The talks were officially opened with participation of President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili and EU High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Vice-President of the European Commission Catherine Ashton.
