Georgia wishes to reset, improve relations with EU, U.S. - PM

TBILISI. June 21 (Interfax) - Georgia needs to reset and improve relations with the European Union and the United States in all areas, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze said.

"It is important that partners take the necessary steps, while we are ready for consultations on all subjects. I am sure that Georgia's relations with the European Union and the United States will improve alongside an improvement of the regional and global situation," Kobakhidze said on Thursday.

He also said he was expecting pragmatic steps from partners.

As to the upcoming NATO summit, Kobakhidze said he was not anticipating any significant change for Georgia.

"The leaders of NATO member states have been saying in public that the alliance's enlargement is not an issue to be discussed actively at this stage, so we are not expecting any significant change from the NATO summit," Kobakhidze said, adding that Georgia was ready for close cooperation with NATO and would continue working on this.
