Joint Declaration of the Prime Ministers of Georgia and Romania on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Georgia and Romania, Mr. Giorgi Kvirikashvili, the Prime Minister of Georgia and Mr. Sorin Grindeanu, the Prime Minister of Romania, issue the following Joint Declaration:

“This year Georgia and Romania celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. Over these years, we have witnessed a constant development of our relations. Close friendship and substantial political dialogue have led to a fruitful bilateral and multilateral collaboration of our two countries, including an active cooperation between the legislative bodies and other institutions. Since 1992, the bilateral relations have steadily increased, including through high-level visits and contacts, working level consultations and development of joint projects, as well as through economic, social and cultural exchanges.

Bearing in mind the existing close ties, we highlight our determination to further expand our relations to a qualitatively new level, aimed at increasing the people-to-people contacts and consolidating our joint efforts dedicated to the promotion of peace, security and stability in the region, for the benefit of our countries and our peoples.

Our intention is cemented by mutual respect towards fundamental principles of international law, sovereignty and territorial integrity, inviolability of borders, as well as for democracy, shared values and common vision for a Europe free, whole and at peace. The genuine partnership that we share encourages us to further upgrade our relations to a strategic level.

Our two countries are close partners historically and politically. Also, geographically, Georgia and Romania represent a natural bridge between Europe and Asia, as both are linked by the Black Sea. We are therefore committed and obliged to explore the whole potential of cooperation that lies in the fields of transport, energy and security related issues, as well as cultural exchanges. Considering the relevance of the Black Sea for advancing interconnection links, we will, as a matter of priority, boost our efforts for developing and multiplying the transportation and energy routes along the Black Sea – Caspian Sea corridor and in relation with the larger neighborhood.

Romania acknowledges the European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations of Georgia and that the Association Agreement does not constitute the ultimate goal for its cooperation with the EU. To this end, Romania will continue to provide political and practical assistance to Georgia. 

Romania also commends Georgia’s significant contribution to the Euro-Atlantic security and its participation in the NATO missions and operations, particularly in Afghanistan. At the same time, Romania is committed to consolidate the role of the Eastern Partnership and to make best use of the policies, programs and projects developed with the EU support for the benefit of its Eastern partners, including Georgia.

Georgia praises Romania’s firm and constant support for its European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations. In this respect Romania’s significant contributions, including the support granted for the recent entry into force of the amended regulation 539/2001 on March 28, 2017, enabling Georgian citizens to travel free of visa requirements to the EU, are of high importance. As a reliable partner of European and Euro-Atlantic institutions, Georgia is keen to further deepen its active cooperation, aimed at full-fledged membership.

Together with our partners, Georgia and Romania are also committed to increase the cooperation for strengthening the Euro-Atlantic security and stability, especially in the Black Sea region.

The 25 years of successful cooperation between Georgia and Romania inspired us to reinforce our efforts and jointly contribute to the process of ensuring peace and security for a better future of our next generations”.
