The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia responds to the resignation of the Ambassador of Georgia to France, Tea Katukia.
“We are surprised by Tea Katukia’s slanderous accusations against the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia. The Ambassador resigned following a preliminary consultation with her, during which it was explained to her that the Ministry was not satisfied with her performance during her time as Ambassador to France.
Unfortunately, she failed to properly fulfill the duties assigned to her and protect the interests of Georgia in one of the most important European countries. Accordingly, the MFA, on the basis of consultation with Mrs. Tea, considered it expedient to recall her from the mentioned position.
Georgia’s relations with France, taking into account the current agenda of our European and Euro-Atlantic integration, have moved to the most important stage, which requires the posting of a highly qualified and experienced diplomat to a leading position in the Embassy”, - reads the statement.
