“Topics that will be discussed include bilateral relations, conditions in both countries’ neighbourhoods, Euro-Atlantic integration of Georgia, and the latest developments in Syria, Egypt, and the Middle East,” the Estonian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

In Estonia the Georgian delegation will visit ICT Demo Center, a facility showcasing Estonia’s information and communications technology solutions. The delegation will also visit the port of Muuga, just outside Tallinn.
