In his social media post, Darchiashvili noted the Georgian delegation, led by the Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze, had “thoroughly discussed” the country’s cooperation with the EU in “numerous areas”.

Glad to be participating in the first official visit of the PM, which he started from Brussels, by meeting Josep Borrell [the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy]”, the FM also said.

Chaired by Kobakhidze and Borrell, the Association Council meeting was held in Brussels today, as part of the Georgian PM’s first official foreign visit.
