Tbilisi, Georgia, April 15

The EU respects the Georgian Orthodox Church and its role in the life of the country, the EU representative office in Georgia said on April 15.

Myth: The Association Agreement infringes on the authority of the Georgian Orthodox Church. Fact: The EU respects the Georgian Orthodox Church and its significant role in the life of the Georgian people.

“European Commissioner Štefan Füle met with Patriarch Ilia II in March 2014 and they talked about the political association and Georgia’s economic integration with the EU,” according to a document. ” The Patriarch expressed his unconditional support for Georgia’s European choice.”

The EU once again explains that the signing of the Association Agreement does not endanger the Georgian culture and traditions.
