Press Conference of Press Speaker Moistsrapishvili

Press Speaker Khatia Moistsrapishvili held a press conference. She congratulated Georgian people on the 100th anniversary of Georgian parliamentarism, highlighting the importance of this historic occasion.

“Hundred years ago, on March 12, 1919, at 12:12 pm, the first session of the Constituent Assembly of the Democratic Republic of Georgia was held at the current Youth Palace.

Georgia is one of the first countries in Europe where women not only voted in elections 100 years ago, but also took part in the development of the First Constitution, and most importantly, were elected members of the Constituent Assembly.

Once again, in this hall, I would like to highlight the names of the female members of the council: Minadora Orjonikidze-Toroshelidze, Kristine Sharashidze, Elisabed Bolkvadze, Ana Sologhashvili, and Eleonora Ter-Farsegova-Makhviladze.

I also should definitely mention Mariam Chkheidze, the first Georgian woman who took part in the development of the first Constitution of Georgia.

This is an impressive fact for the international community even today. Information spread by Georgian users in social networks on March 8 about female members of the Constituent Assembly was the most shared content by the foreign users,” Moistsrapishvili said.

Moistsrapishvili also announced President Zourabichvili’s prospective official visit to Armenia.

The President will visit Armenia on March 13. As part of the visit she will hold a meeting with the President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian. After the meeting, the two presidents will make joint press statements.

President Zourabichvili will also meet with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and President of the National Assembly Ararat Mirzoyan.

The visit will end on March 14.

Moistsrapishvili also summarized President Zourabichvili’s recent official visit to Lithuania, emphasizing that the signing of the Declaration of Intent on Cooperation in Cyber Security is one of the crucial outcomes of the visit.

“President Zourabichvili assessed her visit to Lithuania, Georgia’s friendly country and partner as extremely important and results-oriented.

The signing of the Declaration of Intent on Cooperation in Cyber Security between the two countries is one of the crucial outcomes of the visit.

The declaration implies enhancing cooperation in cyber security between the countries. Lithuania, having a strong National Cyber Security Centre has vast experience in this area.

Therefore, President Zourabichvili believes that through learning from the experience of our friendly country, Georgia will be able to protect its critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks,” Moistsrapishvili said.
