The Speaker of Parliament, Shalva Papuashvili held a meeting with students living in regions that are compactly inhabited by ethnic minorities.
“It is crucial that the Parliament have the chance to enlighten youth about the development of the execution of the 12 recommendations and in terms of European integration,” Papuashvili noted.
Issues related to European integration, candidate status and legislative harmonization were discussed at the meeting.
“The difficulties in this direction, how we are working together in the Parliament to persuade our European colleagues that granting Georgia candidate status is important for us and that Georgia deserves this status, as well as the advantages of European integration, all piqued the interest of the participants. We had a very pleasant conversation about these concerns, and I’m happy that the NATO and EU Information Center is bringing about these opportunities,” Papuashvili commented.
Students living in Kvemo Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Kakheti regions met with the Speaker of the Parliament, and the Deputy Chair of the EU Integration Committee, Nino Iobashvili.
The meeting was organized by the NATO and EU Information Center.
