In order to obtain higher education, work in the state bodies, and resolve many problems they face, Azerbaijanis living in Georgia should learn Georgian, said Nazim Ibrahimov, Chairman of the State Committee for Affairs with Azerbaijanis Living Abroad, Trend reports.

He said that 47,000 ethnic Azerbaijanis out of the total 90,000 graduated from school could enter institutes of higher education. That is a very low indicator. That means that other 43.000 Azerbaijani graduates should look for a job for themselves. One must know the state language to solve the unemployment issues. Sure, our compatriots living in Georgia must know the history, literature, and culture of Azerbaijan. But pupils should learn the Georgian language. They should learn in Georgian to continue their education in higher education institutes of this country and obtain a god job, said N. Ibrahimov.

According to him, this issue cannot be solved other way.
