“I was very grateful to be given the opportunity this morning to pay my respect and remember the victims of the tragic collapse of the building here in Batumi earlier this month. I would like to extend my deep condolences to the friends and families of the victims. We are mourning together,” Carl Hartell said.
The EU Ambassador will inspect the EU-financed projects in Batumi on Thursday.
