Czech Ambassador Petr Mikiska was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for explanations.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the reason for this was his statement published in the media, in which the Ambassador said that part of the products coming to Georgia from the Czech Republic, avoiding the sanctions, goes to Russia.
As the Czech Ambassador said, in 2022, the export of Czech products to Georgia “almost doubled” and he is sure that at least part of it goes to Russia.
“The Czech Ambassador noted that unfortunately his words were misinterpreted and spread out of context. During the meeting with the deputy minister, the ambassador also confirmed that there are no questions regarding the sanctions against Georgia”, - reads the statement of Foreign Ministry.
