Prime Minister Georgiy Gakharia said that Georgia would not not break off diplomatic relations with Ukraine due to the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of head of the executive committee for reform of Ukraine. The ‘Georgian News’ agency reported that.
According to the Prime Minister, Georgia recalled the ambassador in order to hold consultations on the topic "how to protect relations between countries from adventurers."
“We will not question our strategic partnership, the brotherhood of our countries and peoples because of individual irresponsible politicians. Although we recalled the ambassador, this does not mean that we will question diplomatic relations or strategic partnership. We recalled the ambassador only for that to get consultations on how to protect our relations from adventurers," Gakharia said.
It is noted that the prime minister fears Saakashvili's "interference in the internal affairs of Georgia". Gakharia wants to get guarantees from the Ukrainian side that this will not happen.
"We recall the ambassador so that these political adventurers do not interfere with our fraternal and strategic partnership and endanger these relations. This is most important for us. Subsequently, it is imperative that someone whoever he is says that he will it was ensured that in the future there would be no continued interference in the affairs of another country, as he would restrain Mikheil Saakashvili, so that he would refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of Georgia. It’s very interesting for me and I will observe," the head of the Georgian government added.
As we reported before, Georgia has recalled its ambassador in Kyiv for consultations. Such 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.
