Georgian President urges Saakashvili "not to harm state interests"
Tbilisi, Georgia, Jan.13
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
The President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili urges his predecessor, Mikheil Saakashvili, "not to harm the state interests."
The matter rests in the statement of ex-president in connection with the Georgians participating in the military operations in Syria. Saakashvili said that "hundreds of Georgians" in Syria fight on the side of the radicals.
"Many Georgian soldiers heroically serve in missions in Central Africa and Afghanistan," said Margvelashvili. "This service is invaluable for us. At the same time, I would like to ask the ex-president to stop the political games with the topics strategically important for Georgia in terms of security, because it is very important for our country. There are many other topics he can turn his attention to so as not to harm the stability and the state interests of Georgia."
