Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gahariya confirmed that the Georgian ambassador could be recalled from Kyiv if Mikheil Saakashvili was appointed Deputy Prime Minister for reforms in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, as Echo of the Caucasus reports.
“If such a decision is made, we will at least recall the ambassador from Kyiv for consultations,” Gahariya said.
Gahariya added that on the part of Ukraine, as a strategic partner of Tbilisi, it is categorically unacceptable to appoint a person who was convicted in Georgia for a rather serious crime and is actually wanted.
As we reported earlier, Former President of Georgia and former Chairman of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili said that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky had instructed him to negotiate with the International Monetary Fund.
"The president has instructed me to negotiate with the IMF, with other international financial institutions. Ukraine needs much more help than it already receives. I have a very successful experience in cooperation and assertion of national interests," he said.
Also, Davyd Arakhamia, chairman of the Servants of the People faction, commented on the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili as Deputy Prime Minister for reforms.
