Wages are not frozen. Granting of wages was not postponed, Prime Minister said.

The government had not to take urgent measures as in Baltic countries in which wages of state employees were reduced 10-15 percent. We managed to avoid his danger as a result of the government's work, the parliament chairman David Bakradze said.
