Margvelashvili: Lukashenko is a true friend who respects Georgia and its sovereignty

BATUMI, 24 April (BelTA) – President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko is a true friend who respects Georgia, its statehood and sovereignty, President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili told reporters on 24 April, BelTA has learned.

Giorgi Margvelashvili emphasized that the Georgian side is ready to do its best to develop peaceful cooperation with Belarus. In his words, the fact that Belarus is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union and Georgia implements association agreements with the European Union creates opportunities for the countries, not barriers. “We both respect our choice. We are doing our best to get the most positive result for the development of our relations,” the President of Georgia said.

He praises the role of the Belarusian leader in the post-Soviet space. “Minsk is the place where many processes are regulated by peaceful means. President Lukashenko is a person who has done a lot for our neighbors. I am confident that friendship and partnership with such person will help Georgia and the entire region make a big step forward,” he stressed.
