Friday, November 27, Vilnius - President Dalia Grybauskaitė described the bilateral relationship between Lithuania and Georgia as positive and expressed her support for Georgia's further aspirations to cooperate more closely with the European Union.

Dalia Grybauskaitė received the Speaker of Georgia's Parliament, David Bakradze, who is currently visiting Vilnius, and members of the Georgian parliamentary delegation.

Among the issues discussed at the meeting were Georgia's relations with Lithuania as well as its relations with the European Union, the situation in the South Caucasus region, bilateral economic cooperation, and prospects for more dynamic business and investment contacts.

Speaking about Lithuania's recent Euro-integration experience, President Grybauskaitė pointed out that the process of EU negotiations had been primarily beneficial for Lithuania in implementing vitally important reforms. Therefore, she said, Georgia should also make the best possible use of such an opportunity.

Dalia Grybauskaitė urged Georgia to participate more actively in the EU's Eastern Partnership, deriving all the advantages offered by this program.

It was the third meeting between the President Grybauskaitė and Georgian leaders. In the past six months, Dalia Grybauskaitė met twice with Georgia's President Mikheil Saakashvili.
