Georgian PM urges to reduce tension in relations with Russia

Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili stressed that need to reduce tension in the country's relations with Russia.

"I would like to state unequivocally that our every step serves our country’s interests, of course, and when our country needs it - when we are talking about averting serious provocations and ensuring stability in the country - we the politicians must do our best to defuse tension, even though it may take a toll on our image," Kvirikashvili stressed.

"We must try, do our best, to ensure the unwavering and consistent protection of our country’s interests, fulfill the mandate granted to us by our population, and to provide stable living conditions in the country. This has been and will be our primary goal, and I reiterate that we will surely take steps in this direction", the PM noted.

Kvirikashvili once again reiterated importance of the Geneva International Discussions to achieve real progress.

He said relevant steps must be taken under this format to achieve even small progress, because "this small progress is a source of stability in Georgia and if there is anything our country needs in this unstable world today it is the ability to live in stability," reported.
