Polish, Georgian security offices sign agreement
Secretaries of Polish and Georgian security offices in Warsaw on Thursday signed a protocol on the cooperation of both institutions that details the schedule of mutual contacts and scope of debated subjects.
The agreement was signed by BBN head Stanislaw Koziej and Secretary of Georgia's National Security Council Irine Imerlishvili, who visited Poland as part of Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili's delegation.
"Poland and Georgia are linked by friendly cooperation based on common interests, as confirmed by (our) intensive political contacts. Poland, which supports Georgia's pro-Western ambitions, can also share its own experiences related to the NATO accession," Stanislaw Koziej was reported to have said at the meeting.
Georgian western integration bid is in line with Poland's strategic interest as it expands the European community eastwards and thus increase the stability of the entire region, Koziej added.
Secretary Imerlishvili reiterated that Georgia aimed to continue its pro-European and pro-NATO course.
The talks also focused on international security, including the recent actions in the region undertaken by Russia.
The Polish security official stressed that aggressive steps made by Russia had changed the security situation in Europe for the first time since the end of the Cold War.
The BBN head said that any attempts to deprive Eastern European countries of the right to make independent choices in their foreign policies were unacceptable.
