On May 22, Saakashvili arrived in the city of Kiskoros, where the outstanding Hungarian poet Sandor Petofi was born. The city mayor met the distinguished guest and thanked him for his visit. He said it will further strengthen the relations between the two countries and two peoples.
Saakashvili laid flowers at the bust of the Georgian and Abkhaz poets Grigol Abashidze and Bagrat Shinkuba in Kiskoros. "It is very symbolic that the monuments to the Georgian poet Grigol Abashidze and the Abkhazian poet Bagrat Shinkuba were built side by side. They shared a close friendship," he said.
