On 12 November 2012, Štefan Füle, Member of the EC in charge of Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, met Bidzina Ivanishvili, Georgian Prime Minister, in Brussels. Bidzina Ivanishvili made his first overseas visit as Prime Minister. Štefan Füle welcomed Prime Minister Ivanishvili’s reaffirmation of Georgia’s path of European and Euro-Atlantic integration. He underlined the strong desire of the European Union to move quickly ahead, in close co-operation with both the new Government and the Presidency of Georgia, on the broad programme of negotiations and reforms which will lead to Georgia’s political association and economic integration with the European Union. In this context, he called on the Prime Minister and the President to continue to interact effectively during their period of cohabitation, building on the cooperation they already achieved and bearing in mind their respective constitutional roles.
