By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

CE Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland appreciated the Georgian sports delegation's participation at the Olympic Games in Sochi.

Jagland made this statement at a press conference in Tbilisi on Feb. 6.

"CE has always supported Georgia's territorial integrity," he said. "We have always held this principle and will continue to do this in the future."

"One cannot mix politics and sport and use sport for political purposes," he added. "So, Georgia acted correctly when it sent its athletes to the Olympics and did not mix politics and sport.

"This is a sporting event," he added.

"I do not know about the consequences of Georgia's participation in the Olympics," he said.
