    Georgia is seeking a way to take part in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) multinational free trade agreement between the United States and the European Union, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Georgian prime minister added that joining the TTIP "will be an excellent chance to establish, also, free trade with the United States."

    "We are working with the EU to explore the possibility to be plugged into TTIP agreement as a country with similar regulations and institutions like EU standards," Kvirikashvili said in an address to the US Institute of Peace in Washington, DC.
