Following the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili as Head of Ukraine’s National Reform Council, Georgia decided to recall Ambassador to Ukraine Teimuraz Sharashenidze for further consultations. This process is common in diplomatic work. This was stated by the press service of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry.
This decision does not threaten the relations between Ukraine and Georgia.
"Overcoming the epidemic and stabilizing the economy are common tasks for all Europeans. These challenges require new approaches and unconventional solutions from the Government of Ukraine. Mikheil Saakashvili, a citizen of Ukraine, has extensive experience and significant achievements in implementing widely recognized reforms," the message reads.
Ukraine's MFA called on international partners not to make relations contingent on the reform process in Ukraine.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky assigned Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of Head of National Reform Council.
"I sincerely congratulate Mikheil Nikolozovich (Saakashvili, - 112 International) on a new responsible challenge. I believe he can give an impetus to the National Reforms Council and will be instrumental in bringing important changes in the country's life," the President commented on the official's appointment.
