The visit of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrel to Georgia has been confirmed for September 7-8.

Meetings with Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili and Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili have been announced - a message from the EU External Relations Service.

Borrel will also meet with representatives of the parliamentary opposition and civil society.

The visit of the EU representative will take place against the background of the conflict between the president and the government of Georgia over the European tour of Salome Zourabichvili - the ruling party accuses her of violating the Constitution and begins impeachment proceedings.

The European Commission is currently finalizing the preparation of recommendations on Georgia, on the basis of which the European Council will make a decision in December. Georgia will receive candidate status if it is supported by the leaders of all 27 EU countries.

In an interim assessment in the summer, the European Council confirmed Georgia's European perspective, at the same time pointing out the need to implement 12 recommendations.

Radio Liberty's European columnist Rikard Jozwiak noted in August that the wording on Georgia is "still conditional." According to him, “Georgia will probably be given the status of a candidate for EU membership, but they will add more conditions.”
