I raised the importance of continued Georgian efforts to reform in these areas when I met President Saakashvili on 18 February. We continue to remind the Georgian Government, including at ministerial level, that commitment to reform, particularly judicial and electoral reform, and strengthening democracy, media freedom and human rights are key to maintaining international support. My hon. Friend, the Minister for Europe raised these issues with the Georgian Foreign Minister in October 2009, and the Prime Minister in November 2009.
