Giorgi Kvirikashvili Surprised at Lack of Photos Exhibited of Eduard Shevardnadze

At the opening of the piece of the Berlin Wall in Europe Square, Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili expressed his surprise at the absence of any photos of Eduard Shevarnadze at the event. The Prime Minister believes that the former president’s contribution to such a significant moment in modern history is not something that can be neglected. 

"I am very surprised that Eduard Shevardnadze's photos have not been exhibited today, as the role of the then Foreign Minister of the Soviet Union in this very important event was unmanageable and it should be noted in history,"  Kvirikashvili said.

The fragment of the Berlin Wall was given to the Georgian PM as a gift, as a symbolic representation of Georgian-Germany friendship, on his recent visit to Germany. The erection of the wall fragment took place today at Europe Square, with the ceremony attended by Kvirikashvili as well as the Ambassador of Germany to Georgia, the Ambassador of Georgia to Germany, and other dignitaries.
