In Georgia he also took part in a session of the Parliament’s Security and Defence Committee and met with representatives of the civil society. The discussions focused on regional security issues and the prospects for further political dialogue and practical cooperation with these important partner countries, especially in the context of Russia’s unprovoked and brutal invasion of Ukraine and of the final preparations for the 2022 NATO Summit in Madrid, at the end of June. This was his second official trip to the South Caucasus, since his appointment in September 2021.
