At the meeting with the Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili, the President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Eiki Nestor promised that Estonia would support Georgia's strivings towards the membership of the European Union and NATO.

“Estonian politicians have many times spoken of Georgia’s wish to join the European Union and NATO at their meetings with the representatives of other European countries,” Nestor told Garibashvili. “It often happens that the attention of the international community is gripped by new crises, but the problems of Georgia must not be overlooked.”

Nestor was happy about the conviction of the Prime Minister of Georgia that Georgia will continue the efforts to become a member of the EU and NATO also after the parliamentary elections of 2016.

At the meeting, Nestor and Garibashvili also discussed the refugee crisis and the relations with Russia. Nestor described the role of the Riigikogu in the European Union affairs and explained how the opposition is included in the management of the work of the parliamentary committees.

Members of the Riigikogu Eerik-Niiles Kross, Enn Eesmaa and Dmitri Dmitrijev also took part in the meeting.
