President’s negative assessment of David Bakradze’s time as the Georgian Ambassador to the US stands - Presidential Administration

President of Georgia selected David Bakradze as the new Georgian Ambassador to the United Nations despite having serious misgivings about his competency. The relevant statement made today Natia Sulava, the Head of the Presidential Administration.

“The President’s negative assessment of Bakradze’s time as the Georgian Ambassador to the US stands. Salome Zourabichvili does not consider it appropriate to appoint him as a permanent representative to the United Nations, while a war is going on in our neighboring and friendly country [of Ukraine].

The President had voiced this position on numerous occasions in both public and informal settings”, - said Natia Sulava.

David Bakradze replaced Kakha Imnadze, who has been in the position since 2013 and is now moving on to be the Georgian Ambassador to Canada.
