The Slovak EU presidency has “an ambition to complete” Georgia’s EU visa liberalisation process before the October 8 parliamentary elections in Georgia, Foreign Minister of Slovakia, Miroslav Lajčák, said.
Lajčák, whose country took over the rotating EU presidency this month, said that the visa waiver in the Schengen area for Georgia would be now the EU’s “most priced deliverable”.
He made the remarks when speaking about the priorities of the Slovak EU presidency at a meeting with MEPs from European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs on July 12.
