Regarding the record loss of Lari, the member of the faction "Georgian Dream" states that the government works with the close coordination to the National Bank to solve the problem.
"You remember how hard the consequences of the 2008 war were and what was the outcome. It was about 4.5 billion dollars from our western partners to support the Georgia. It enabled our country to come out from the economic crisis. As for today"s situation, it is not surprising that this complication created after this provocation will have to bring out the relevant results on the course of the Lari, but we must take responsibility with these processes again and the task should be to get back the status quo we had one month ago. We have daily communication with the National Bank and we have to solve all these problems that can be linked to our national currency, " - said Irakli Kobakhidze.
