Georgian President Salomé Zourabichvili: 'Reality will show how independent I am'

France 24's interview with President Salome Zourabichvili Produced by Camille Février and Roxane Runel.

 

Her election at the end of 2018 marked a few firsts – she is the first woman in the job, and the first Georgian President to have started life as a French citizen. In our interview, we ask new president Salomé Zourabichvili about the hard-fought election campaign and the involvement of her billionaire backer Bidzina Ivanishvili; Georgia's European membership aspirations; and Georgia's relations with neighbouring Russia.
