I raised Georgia's elections when I met President Saakahsvili in February. I reminded him of the importance we attach to free and fair elections, and to Georgia's continued democratic and judicial reforms.

We regularly discuss and encourage these reforms with Georgian Government Ministers. We have made clear that free and fair elections are important in demonstrating Georgia's progress in taking forward political reform, underpinning Georgia's strategy of engagement with the separatist regions, and moving towards greater integration with the EU.
