Latvian Photo-exhibition Marking 20th  Anniversary of Diplomatic Ties
On March 21, the photo-exhibition titled “Latvia from the Bird’s Eye View” was held at the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to mark the 20th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Georgia and Latvia.
The photo-exhibition abounded with the ambassadors accredited in Georgia, which left an impression that they felt at home at the ministry that is in charge of them. The exhibition was interesting, featuring a lot of sights that you should see if you are going to visit
Latvia. They included picturesque views of Riga, the capital city, the Baltic Sea that is surprising – its coast and forest, that make a wonderful tandem, very beautiful Gauja River, Ventas Rumba, the widest waterfall in Europe and others.
Ms. Maia Panjikidze, Georgian Minister of Foreign Affairs opened the pleasant meeting as a hostess. Later on, she commented for the journalists: “Today we are marking the 20th anniversary of establishing diplomatic ties with Latvia. We are always celebrating such kind of events. The Ambassador of Latvia had an initiative to hold the exhibition here and we gladly accepted her offer. This is already the second cultural event in the last month. The more cultural events are held at our ministry, the better. I want to encourage the ambassadors not to hesitate, they are welcome. Latvia is one of the friendliest countries for Georgia that greatly supports us in the process of integration in European and Euro-Atlantic structures. Latvia comprehends Georgia very well because we have shared the common past. Therefore, the pieces of advice coming from Latvian politicians are of utmost importance for us.”
Ms. Elita Gavele, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Latvian Republic to Georgia told the journalists: “Latvia is one of the closest partners of Georgia. Therefore, it would have been unfair if we did not celebrate this date. I believe that all Georgians know about our support for you for all times since the collapse of the Soviet Union. You probably remember the fact that the Latvian Ambassador flew to Georgia immediately following the August war of 2008. I think there is a virtual love between these two countries. I very much believe that the similar thing will be done in Riga, as everyone knows about Georgia’s aspiration to join European Union and become a member of NATO..”
To the question what their expectations were from the upcoming Vilnius Summit, Ms. Maia Panjikidze answered that there are two main points: joining free trade zone and overcoming the first stage of visa liberalization, which in her words, will be one more important step towards the Euro-Atlantic integration. Ms. Elita Gavele replied that she has the best expectations, as all other friends of Georgia. The official part of the meeting turned into a non-official one, when all guests shared their impressions, and greeted one another, sipping glasses of Georgian wine and tasting delicious Latvian candy.
