“I declare once again, the time has come for unity around Georgia’s national interests,” said the leader of the For Georgia party.
Speaking in parliament on March 14, President Zurabishvili made a number of critical statements about both the ruling team and the opposition.
She criticized the Parliament and said that society today is more adequate and conscious than the MPs.
Zurabishvili claimed that she was refused official visits to European capitals by the local authorities.
“The government sins when it does not dare to express what our history and dignity dictate,” she said.
She appealed to her Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, to return the recalled ambassador from Georgia.
“Today, from this tribune, I address my colleague and friend, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, and ask him to return the ambassador so that the connection between the two nations, in these difficult times, can be fully strengthened and closer and more unwavering,” the President noted.
