The one who says that this is an ethnic issue, is the enemy of the country. Such a statement made today the Minister of Internal Affairs. Vakhtang Gomelauri already arrived in Dmanisi and made his first comment to media.
He underlined that those who violated the law will be punished.
“It is a matter of turning things into a confrontation. It is very important that both ethnic Azeris and Georgians are our citizens. They have lived together for centuries. They are all our brothers.
We will not allow this. The perpetrator will be severely punished. This issue should not escalate into an ethnic conflict, of course.
An investigation has been launched, an investigation is underway and I can’t confirm the fact of detention. It was a bad situation, the chaotic situation was created very quickly. The one who says that this is an ethnic issue, is the enemy of the country”, - added the Minister.
