President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the recall of Ambassador Teimuraz Sharashenidze from Ukraine by Georgia is the mistake as Ukrayinska Pravda reported.
“With Georgia, Georgian people, we have wonderful relations. We, despite everything, will not recall our ambassador to Ukraine for consultations. Because the relations between our countries are longer than any leadership of any country. I believe it is the mistake of the Georgian side. I believe that after the consultations all sides will understand that in each state, the personnel policy concerns this state and citizens who live in it,” Zelensky said.
Besides, the president noted that the appointment of Saakashvili as the Head of Executive Committee of Reforms of Ukraine is the decision of the president of Ukraine; it is the inner policy of the country.
“Mr. Saakashvili is the citizen of Ukraine, with Ukrainian passport and I as the president of Ukraine appointed him as the Head of Executive Committee of Reforms of Ukraine at the president of Ukraine; that’s it,” he added.
As we reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky assigned Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of Head of Executive Committee of Reforms. The mentioned presidential decree also puts Oleksandr Olshansky second in charge in the Executive Committee of Reforms of Ukraine, that is, Saakashvili's deputy.
Later, Georgia 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.
