The Foreign Ministry of Georgia will call the Ukrainian ambassador due to the statement of Head of the Executive Committee of Reforms Mikheil Saakashvili, as Gruzia Online reported, citing Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani.
According to Zalkaliani, the call of the Ukrainian ambassador is tied with the recent statement of Saakashvili about the parliamentary elections in Georgia.
“It is the issue that encouraged us to a very serious approach due to which we recalled the ambassador for consultations. We warned our Ukrainian colleagues about it – a person, appointed at one of the high positions, a wanted person that should be prosecuted by the Georgian law on four independent cases, continues to interfere in the inner policy of Georgia. Of course, the statement that we heard yesterday is the direct interference in the inner affairs of another country and direct interference of the citizen of Ukraine in the election process,” Zalkaliani said.
On June 10, Saakashvili wrote on Facebook next: “I am not going to stand to see the destruction and complete destruction of Georgia. I will be at the front line of the struggle in fact.”
Previously, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky assigned Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of Head of Executive Committee of Reforms. This is mentioned in the decree released on the website of the head of the state.
Later, Georgia recalled its ambassador in Kyiv for consultations. Such a move is due to the recent appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian leader who is, from now on, the head of the Executive Committee of Reforms that works by the President of Ukraine.
