“It is a victory that Georgia withstood all the tough challenges for the last 30 years – wars, occupation, provocations. The country was able to follow its own chosen path despite obstacles, threats, or attacks. In this difficult region, Georgia firmly maintains its independence, statehood, and sovereignty,” President Zourabicvili underscored in her speech at the Independence Day ceremony.
