Georgia, a former Soviet satellite, is making much desired progress in its integration process with the European Union.
“We accept all criticism. Not everything is perfect, there’s no doubt about that. The real transformation of the country is coming now and it’s not easy,” said Victor Dolidze, chairman of the European Integration Committee in the Georgian parliament responding to some reservations made by MEPs during a debate in Brussels.
Slawek Szefs reports, however, that Armenia, which has declared similar aspirations and is also part of the six nation Eastern Partnership project, has lately drifted towards Russia.
"We practically have an [association] agreement with Armenia already negotiated. If, for some reason, it cannot be ratified at present and signed in the near future then Armenia will have to wait for better times to come," commented Poland’s head of diplomacy Radoslaw Sikorski.
