What lessons can be drawn for U.S. policy? To consider these issues, The Jamestown Foundation and the SAIS Central Asia–Caucasus Institute are co-hosting a panel discussion of experts from the United States and Europe.

Silk Road Forum with Mr. Alex Petriashvili

State Minister Of Georgia for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration

After the 2012 October Parliamentary elections in Georgia there has been a renewed interest towards the developments in the country, priorities and goals of the new Government. In 2012 Georgia passed a litmus test by holding successful parliamentary elections that marked the first peaceful transition of power in the history of the country - another significant step towards achieving the fundamental goal of joining the European family of shared values and principles. From the very first day, the new Georgian government made it clear that Georgia’s western path was irreversible and foreign policy priorities would remain unchanged. Hereby, Georgia’s interest to normalize relations with Russia and its firm quest for European integration and Euro-Atlantic membership is not a choice of “either-or”.
