Deputy Foreign Minister Nikoloz Vashakidze, who has worked in the Foreign Ministry for years now, has resigned from his position. Press Service of the Foreign Ministry told Tabula that that was Vashakidze’s personal decision.
Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze expressed her regret regarding the fact adding that Vashakidze was offered to continue his activity in a diplomatic service but he turned down that offer.
“The reason of my decision was my disagreement with the current foreign political course and style. I will refrain from saying anything else at this stage; this is a topic of serious discussion and I will limit myself now to that brief comment alone,” InterPressNews agency quoted Nikoloz Vashakidze as saying on 21 January.
