Prime Minister of Georgia Iraklii Garibashvili declares that the request for the visit of President Salomi Zurabishvili to Brussels will be granted.
Garibashvili's statement is cited by the Georgian First Channel.
"I think it is very embarrassing to talk about these topics. These are technical issues that the administrations decide between themselves. To bring it up for public review is frivolous, inappropriate and, in general and in general, I think it does not deserve such attention. Of course, Ms. Salome her request for a visit will be granted. We are working and most importantly, the main things we are doing," he said.
On Wednesday, the administration of Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili publicly complained that since April 27, it has been waiting for the government's approval for Zurabishvili's visit to Brussels on May 31. At the same time, it was noted that after the decision of the Russian Federation to resume direct flights with Georgia, Tbilisi agreed almost immediately.
The ruling Georgian Dream party admitted that they do not want to give consent to the country's president's visit to Brussels, allegedly because it could harm Georgia's chances of acquiring the status of a candidate for EU membership.
