Given the situation in Iran, I would have closed the border and not allowed any Iranian citizen to enter Georgia, – the former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili said in an interview with the program “Main Accents”.
Mikheil Saakashvili points out that mass entry from Iran poses a threat to Georgia currently.
“Given the situation in Iran, first of all, I would have closed the border and not let any Iranian citizen enter Georgia as it constitutes a threat to the country. Can our security system prevent terrorist threats? Now easiest way out is to close the border. At this stage, we should temporarily close the border for Iranian citizens, this does not raise any doubts, that is what the state is for. Those for whom the border is now closed are political refugees. The border should be closed for people who pose a threat to the country. Completely different type of lobbying is necessary. Trump has repeatedly mentioned the NATO’s expansion in the Middle East, and this is a new opportunity for Georgia. Trump has acted correctly and adequately, ” – Mikheil Saakashvili said.
