  • It is unacceptable to discuss any referendum while Georgia’s territory is occupied by Russia – David Zalkaliani

    “It is unacceptable to discuss any referendum while Georgia’s territory is occupied by Russia. No referendum will have any legal force amid the occupation, especially against the backdrop of hundreds of thousands of our citizens being expelled from their homes as a result of the ethnic cleansing and not being allowed to return” - the Georgian Vice Prime Minister/Foreign Minister, David Zalkaliani said at a joint briefing following his meeting with his Danish counterpart, Jeppe Kofod.
    The Georgian Foreign Minister said that the Government will not allow Georgia to be dragged into provocations or the dire consequences of the 2008 Russo-Georgian War to repeat again.
    Zalkaliani stressed that Georgia remains consistent with and committed to its policy of peaceful de-occupation. “We will not use force to restore territorial integrity, this is our legal obligation, which the international community clearly supports” – he added.

  • GLOBALink | Russian, Ukrainian FMs meet in Turkey

    The meeting comes on the sidelines of an international forum in the presence of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

    It is the first high-level meeting between Moscow and Kiev since Russia launched a "special military operation" in Ukraine on Feb. 24.

    The three ministers are scheduled to hold separate press conferences following the talks in Belek, a resort town about 30 km from Antalya's provincial capital.

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the meeting is "an important continuation of the negotiation process."

    While Ukrainian and Russian delegations have held three rounds of peace talks in Belarus since last week, the negotiations ended without any substantial progress on ending the conflict.

  • We express solidarity and strong support to the brotherly Ukrainian people in the fight for freedom, we will always stand by you - David Zalkaliani

    "We once again express our solidarity and strong support to the brotherly Ukrainian people in the fight for freedom. We are always by your side, because we know the value of freedom and the fight for it" – the Vice Prime Minister/Foreign Minister, David Zalkaliani said when speaking before the audience gathered to mark Ukraine’s Unity Day at the Embassy of Ukraine. Administration of the MFA Georgia announced it recently.

    According to David Zalkaliani, recent developments have shown that the world today faces significant challenges, especially when it comes to violating territorial integrity and sovereignty. As the Minister highlighted, Georgia became target of Russian aggression in 2008, and this was followed by the recognition of Georgia’s regions as independent states and the occupation of 20 percent of its territories. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people became refugees in their own country.
    "Our brotherly nation - Ukraine is going through the same ordeal today. The Russian Duma’s decision to recognize Donetsk and Lugansk is alarming. Georgia condemns this action” - Georgia's first diplomat pointed out.
    According to the Foreign Minister, the foregoing poses a threat not only to Georgia and Ukraine, but also to the entire European architecture. "No one has the right to forbid sovereign nations to choose their own path of development, friends and alliances. We are confident that we will continue to work with our brotherly Ukrainian people to realize the historic choice they have deserved. "- said the Vice Prime Minister of Georgia.
    According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, this day should be a day of unity not only for Ukraine, but also for the whole of progressive society.
