Talking about the businessman, the President noticed "in childhood in Georgia he [Charmeklin] saw only Soviet projectors". "Now this border is open, but when we first entered this hotel, on behalf of the government of independent Georgia I gave Nurettin Charmeklin a rusty projector," Saakashvili said.
The Georgian leader reminded about the relatively new tradition to name streets after prominent living people, and drew George Bush-jr, the ex-President of the USA, as an example.
