​Ten Non-Resident Ambassadors Present Credentials to President Zourabichvili

The ceremony of presenting credentials to President Salomé Zourabichvili by non-resident ambassadors was held at the Presidential Palace.
The President of Georgia has received credentials from non-resident ambassadors representing the Sultanate of Oman, the Kingdom of Thailand, the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Republic of Peru, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, the Republic of Tajikistan, and the Republic of the Philippines.
President Zourabichvili addressed the ambassadors and talked about Georgia’s occupation. She also asked them to visit the occupying line.
“The existential issue is the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. As you are aware, 20% of Georgia’s territory is occupied. The occupying line is a profoundly serious issue. We will appreciate if either in this occasion or in a near occasion, you will be able to go and see by yourself how the occupying line looks like, how close it is to the country’s capital city, and what it means.
“Despite the occupation, the war in 2008, and the ongoing occupation, we continue our country’s peaceful, economic and democratic advancement. We follow our path toward NATO and the European Union that is unchangeable and remains as our main path.
“This is important not only for the State, but for the population as well who reside on both sides of the occupying line. Hence, the non-recognition policy is highly important for us. We count on our partners in this non-recognition policy’s promotion. We wish them to be supporters of the IDP’s resolution in the United Nations, to support us in the peaceful path for development that has been taken and chosen by independent Georgia,” stated President Salome Zourabichvili.
Following the ceremony, the President of Georgia hosted non-resident ambassadors in a non-formal environment.
