Ukrainian Foreign Ministry expresses concern over Ukraine’s response to Saakashvili’s statement

Ukrainian Foreign Ministry expresses concern over Ukraine’s response to Mikheil Saakashvili’s statements. According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba, a private person’s remarks won’t break-up the relations between our people and countries.


“The situation about Saakashvili is unfortunate because he’s a citizen of Ukraine who isn’t responsible for expressing the government’s position and actively comments on the existing pre-elections situation in Georgia.


His every statement ends with Ukrainian Ambassador being summoned in Georgian MFA where they raise concerns about Saakashvili’s remarks. The disbalance is the following - a state becomes responsible for a private individual’s acts.


I understand the sensitive situation in which Georgian finds itself before the elections and appreciates the friendship with Georgian partners. We hope that the relations will stabilize because a private person’s statements won’t break-up the relations between our people and countries.


Our position is quite clear - Saakasvhili is a private person who doesn’t represent Ukraine”, - concluded the Minister.
