FIBA Europe has issued a statement regarding the FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Group A game between Turkey and Georgia played on September 4, 2022 in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Following the conclusion of the Game, the Turkish Basketball Federation (TBF) submitted a protest regarding a timekeeping operations error (the game clock ran for 22 seconds while the game was stopped).
After reviewing all material and evidence submitted, the Single Judge of the FIBA EuroBasket Disciplinary Panel ruled that:
While indeed there was a timekeeping operations error during the 4th quarter of the Game, the TBF failed to establish in their protest, as per the Official Basketball Rules, that had it not been for the timekeeping operations error, a different result would have certainly materialized. In consequence, TBF’s protest, objecting the result of the game, was dismissed.
Regarding the allegations from both federations in relation to actions in the team areas of the venue, involving players and delegation members from both teams, an investigation is currently ongoing. Once the investigation is concluded, the competent FIBA bodies will decide on any applicable disciplinary measures.

"The scale of the Turkish-Georgian Business Forum clearly reflects the very special, friendly and strategic relations between the two countries - Georgia and the Republic of Turkey," Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili told participants of the Turkish-Georgian Business Forum "Chveneburebi".
The forum was held for the first time with the participation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia at the initiative of the Georgian Historical Diaspora living in the Republic of Turkey and the Association with Georgian and Turkish Businessmen. It should be noted that the Turkey-Georgia Business Forum, organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, is the fourth large-scale event organized by Diaspora representatives to ensure their involvement in the country's economic reconstruction process.
According to Ilia Darchiashvili, this year, when the 30th anniversary of the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries is celebrated, the holding of a business forum gains special weight and somehow summarizes the achievements of Georgia and Turkey in developing mutually beneficial cooperation in a number of areas. According to Darchiashvili, it is important to hold this large-scale event with the country, which was one of the first to recognize Georgia's independence and today is one of the active supporters of our country in the international arena.
As the Minister emphasized, "the prominent representatives of our diaspora make a special contribution to the establishment of this wide range and sustainable relationship, because they are the ones who contribute to the establishment of strategic cooperation and the development of economic ties." In addition to being interested in economic projects, they, according to Darchiashvili, are carriers of the culture of the two countries, the values of the two countries and fulfill a special mission in terms of strengthening inter-people ties and popularizing our country.

"Chveneburebi interested in Georgia, Georgian language, alphabet, culture gather in Georgian cultural centers, celebrate holidays, celebrate the friendship and joint achievements of two brotherly nations!" - the Minister added.
According to him, the interest of Georgian businessmen working in Turkey in the investment environment and economic opportunities of Georgia is growing day by day. Therefore, it is important to regularly inform them about the current processes, reforms and economic trends in Georgia, which will allow them not only to implement interesting business projects, but also to act as a kind of "investment representatives" in relations with foreign partners.
"We are interested and will support the regular holding of such meetings, which will help our compatriots to discover new spaces, new opportunities and use the country for the better," Ilia Darchiashvili said.

Ukrainian negotiator David Arakhamia announced Sunday that the next round of one-on-one talks between Kyiv and Moscow will take place in Turkey on March 28-30.
D. Arakhamia made the announcement on social media.
Ukraine described previous talks with Russia, launched after Russia unleashed an invasion last month, as "very difficult."
Ankara hosted the foreign ministers of Russia and Ukraine in Antalya earlier this month. Foreign Ministers Sergey Lavrov of Russia and Dmytro Kuleba of Ukraine met for talks in the Turkish resort town of Antalya, which Çavuşoğlu also attended. The talks were largely inconclusive, but Ankara considers the fact that they took place at all a success.
Maintaining its neutral and balanced stance, Turkey continues its diplomatic efforts to de-escalate the Ukraine conflict, urging all sides to exercise restraint. While Ankara has opposed international sanctions designed to isolate Moscow, it also closed its straits to prevent some Russian vessels from crossing through them.
NATO ally Turkey borders Ukraine and Russia in the Black Sea and has good ties with both. Since the beginning of the conflict, Ankara has offered to mediate between the two sides and host peace talks, underlining its support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. Having recently called Russia’s invasion an unacceptable violation of international law, Turkey has carefully formulated its rhetoric not to offend Moscow, with which it has close energy, defense and tourism ties.
While forging close ties with Russia on energy, defense and trade, and relying heavily on Russian tourists, Turkey has sold drones to Ukraine, which angered Moscow. Turkey also opposes Russian policies in Syria and Libya, as well as Moscow's annexation of Crimea. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has repeatedly said Turkey will not abandon its relations with Russia or Ukraine, underlining that Ankara's ability to speak to both sides is an asset.
