Tbilisi, Georgia, Sept. 15
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili told reporters Sept. 15 that he did not expect such deterioration in relations with President Giorgi Margvelashvili.
"What has happened lately is sad. We, like my predecessor Bidzina Ivanishvili, did not expect such deterioration in relations," the prime minister said.
However, he believes that if everyone does his own job and does not, at least, interfere with each others work, everything will be settled.
"I believe that we all - the president, parliament, government, courts, and media, who have great responsibility to society, will all work," Garibashvili said. "I believe that if we do our own job, everything will be all right in the country. We should not interfere with each other's work; that is the main thing. If we intervene, there will be a conflict."
Initially, the differences between the leaders of Georgia began due to President Margvelashvili's planned visit to the U.S., which, according to him, was foiled.
Margvelashvili said earlier that his visit was actually foiled, and it was due to the government's efforts.
Georgian president refused to name the persons who foiled his visit to New York, where he was invited by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to a climate summit.
Georgian government insisted on the abolition of the president's visit, as one delegation should go to New York to attend the UN meeting, and it must be led by the Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili.
