Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on Wednesday echoed International Day of Tolerance, saying “tolerance, appreciation of people, respect for dignity and acceptance of diversity are a continuous tradition of our great culture and history and an integral part of Georgian identity.”
In its Facebook post, PM Garibashvili went on to say that “for centuries, people of different nationalities, religions and traditions lived together in dignity on our land and together created the history of our common motherland.”
“Our country’s Constitution recognizes and guarantees the fundamental values of human rights and freedoms. We respect and will always protect the dignity and freedom of every citizen,” the Prime Minister underscored.
The International Day for Tolerance is observed annually on November 16 to promote awareness of the value of tolerance in society.
