The sides have expressed common support of Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has backed up the Plan on regulating the conflict, approved by the European Union, in particular, due to proactive approach of France and Germany.

“Ukraine wants to be a constructive part of the EU’s efforts,” Yulia Tymoshenko noted in the course of conversation. According to her, today all extremely need appropriate reaction to new challenges”.

Angela Merkel, in her turn, emphasized the importance of avoiding escalation of tension and inadmissibility of steps which can result in unilateral unanticipated actions. “Under conditions of increasing threats for regional security, preserving political stability should be Ukraine’s priority. This is a precondition for further steps towards integration,” the Chancellor of Germany said.
