It is too early to speak about other formats with Russia unless the existing is expired, we should activate direct ties with our Ossetian and Abkhazian fellow citizens, – Candidate for the post of Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said at a meeting with members of the Patriots’ Alliance and Social Democrats. The representatives of the faction, Irma Inashvili and Ada Marshania raised the issue of territorial integrity during the meeting.
“First of all, we must use the maximum capabilities of these formats and using them effectively. As for direct ties with our Ossetian and Abkhaz fellow citizens, we should activate everything related to public diplomacy. The relevant agencies here are working effectively and their results should be even more effective and efficient.
We must not forget that today we are not able to implement effective control over these occupied territories and in terms of security when talking about bilateral relations, close ties in different directions, we must also take this into account”, – Giorgi Gakharia said.
