The head of Servant of the People party faction, Davyd Arakhamia, threatened Georgia with problems. He said this in response to a statement by Georgia on the recall of the ambassador from Kyiv - in case Mikheil Saakashvili was appointed Deputy Prime Minister for reforms, as Obozrevatel reports.
The MP noted that in case of such scenario, Georgia will face greater problems than Ukraine. He also noted that he considers Saakashvili "a good person and a candidate for a position in the government".
“If we have diplomatic problems, then Georgia will have them bigger than our own. It's not the United States, which says: ‘You will have diplomatic problems.’ This is Georgia. We must not forget about this,” the parliamentarian added.
He stressed that he himself is a Georgian and understands perfectly how Saakashvili is perceived under the current government.
"This is just an attempt to exert pressure. We have a sovereign state, and no country in the world will tell us who we need to appoint Deputy Prime Minister and who we don’t need to. This is absolutely wrong rhetoric. We will definitely find a common language with the Georgians, we are fraternal nations, we will get along very well, this is a hospitable country," Arakhamia stated.
He added that before quarantine, Ukraine was ranked second in terms of the flow of tourists to Georgia. Therefore, the politician believes, Tbilisi will not want to lose this segment of customers.
As we reported before, 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.
