Margvelashvili: Georgia has centuries-old tradition of tolerance
Georgia has a centuries-old tradition of tolerance, Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili said in his address on the International Day for Tolerance, APA’s Georgia bureau reported.
The president said that representatives of different nationalities and religions have for centuries coexisted without problems in Georgia and created a common homeland.
“The process of building an independent European Georgia is of paramount importance to everybody and, despite the diversity, each individual must become a participant and creator of this process. Cultural diversity, the recognition of different traditions and respect for them are important conditions for consensus in society, peace and all-round development,” APA quoted him as saying.
