Chronology of Diplomatic Relations

Diplomatic Relations between the Republic of Estonia and Georgia were established on 16 June 1992.

Fields of cooperation:

Estonia firmly supports Georgia's European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations and expresses readiness to share to Georgia its successful experience of European and Euro-Atlantic integration. Estonia supports Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty within its internationally recognized borders. Georgia and Estonia enjoy intensive bilateral inter-parliamentary, cultural, economic, defense and border management cooperation.

Georgia is a priority country for Estonia's Development Cooperation policy. That implies support to the implementation of joint projects aiming at establishing good governance, development of modern educational system and sustainable democracy in Georgia.

 Cooperation in the field of culture is active and productive. In July 2013, Opera and Ballet Theatres of Tbilisi, Kutaisi and Batumi participated in Saaremaa International Opera Festival. It was an unprecedented event in terms of promotion of Georgian culture in Estonia as well as Baltic/Nordic region.  On October 15, 2013, Georgian-Estonian co-production movie "Tangerines" was released, which has already been awarded at number of international film festivals.
