The head of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov met with the Consul of Georgia, Tornike Berekashvili, and Mayor of Batumi, Lashay Komahidze. During the conversation, they discussed ideas for strengthening cooperation, in particular in the cultural and tourist spheres.

"We have every opportunity to intensively develop our relationships and embark on the most ambitious projects. We speak one language - the language of love for their countries, regions, in particular. And so, sure, our cooperation is doomed to success. We already have the experience of the incredible Odessa Classics festival, which the world classical musicians came to our region in the summer and which had a successful continuation in Batumi. Promising directions for the development of cooperation between our countries and regions is a lot, "Maxim Stepanov emphasized.

In turn, representatives of the Georgian delegation congratulated those present with the Flag Day and the coming Independence Day of Ukraine. They also stressed that they would be happy to expand cooperation.

"You can count on the fact that from our side all efforts will be made to make our relations better and warmer. And they were embodied in concrete projects, which we can realize in the Odessa region and in Batumi. I am confident that this meeting will contribute to strengthening our friendship, as well as cultural and social relations, "said Mayor of Batumi, Lasha Komahidze.
