Georgian FM: Nothing extraordinary about rallies

Georgia , Tbilisi, May 23 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /

Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze believes there is nothing extraordinary about the Public Assembly's rallies running in Tbilisi.

"As a member of the government, I can say that the Georgian government recognizes the citizens' right of freedom of assembly and demonstration. It is our valuable principle, which we respect," Kalandadze told journalists in Tbilisi on Monday.

Regarding the West's reaction to the ongoing processes in Tbilisi and Batumi, Kalandadze said no position has been voiced.

"The Georgian Foreign Ministry has not received any requests over the issue from the international community. While we are watching how current events are covered in international media, " she said.

The Georgian radical opposition has been holding rallies demanding the resignation of President Mikheil Saakashvili.
