Poles and Georgians share their love for freedom and their patriotism, Polish President Andrzej Duda said in Tbilisi on Saturday, stressing that there could be no consent to the violation of borders and the international law.

President Duda paid a visit to Georgia on Saturday to attend observances marking the centenary of the 1st Democratic Republic of Georgia. Other leaders from Central and Eastern Europe as well as European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also took part in the anniversary events.

"Poles and Georgians are nations that adhere to the same values. We share our love for freedom and our deep patriotism. Both you and us had to fight for a long time for our right to self-determination and our own statehood, therefore sovereignty and independence of our homelands is the most precious treasure for us," the Polish president said at the Freedom Square in Georgia's capital.

"We will never agree to the violation of borders of sovereign states, we will not accept aggression and we will always protest against violating the international law," President Duda said, stressing that it was the observance of the international law that guaranteed peace and security in Europe and the world.

"Although today we are celebrating the beautiful anniversary of restoring your independence, we are aware of the threats and challenges that we're still facing. We must show unity and solidarity in confronting them," President Duda said.

It was "nearly ten years ago when the Polish president, Professor Lech Kaczyński, stood nearby this place to protest together with other leaders of our region against (Russia's - PAP) aggression against Georgia and urge the world to stop it," Andrzej Duda said.

"He gave us a lesson in geopolitics that is still topical today: we must always stand together in the face of the threats and challenges posed by an aggressive world; we are strong when we act together," President Duda said.

In this context, Andrzej Duda reiterated Poland's unwavering support for Georgia's EU and NATO aspirations. "Doors to the European Union and NATO should remain open to those states and nations that share the values adhered to by these communities," the President stressed.

"I wish Georgia and Georgian people peace and security, prosperity and continuing growth for the next 100 years. Let the Georgians' right to their own independent state never be disturbed by anyone," the Polish President concluded. (PAP)
