Georgian president calls Brexit new opportunity (Watch video)
28 August, 2019
Georgians feel that they are Europeans. It is not something they are striving for. They are European, President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili said in her interview with Euronews. Zurabishvili said Georgia is ready to join the European Union and that she would like to see the country move closer to Brussels.

"They are also very optimistic about Europe because they think that European attraction is something that has no alternative, which is something that from the inside sometimes Europeans do not

Zurabishvili added that Brexit could mean opportunities for other countries: “I think that Brexit is certainly a very big challenge, but I’m sure that it will lead to new opportunities and to new obligations of Europe to reform itself, and being an optimist I am sure it will open new doors to us.”

Zurabishvili also condemned the ‘unacceptable presidential elections' in Abkhazia.
