I would like to address Maria Zakharova: withdraw the soldiers from our regions – Talakvadze

The Speaker of the Parliament Archil Talakvadze responded to Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova.

“I would like to address Maria Zakharova and the people she represents - if their words that Georgia is a sovereign state are no empty words and hypocrisy, then, first of all, they should give us back our occupied territories and withdraw their soldiers from our regions”, - said Talakvadze.

Maria Zakharova earlier spoke about the upcoming Council of Europe’s ministerial in Tbilisi and the recent turmoil around the possible visit of Russian officials to Georgia during the event, stating that “visits of foreign officials must not be a problem for any sovereign state”.
