Georgian ambassador to the United States told about life in Sakartvelo
In the U.S., in Washington, in the Hopkins Center, Georgian ambassador Temur Yakobashvili told about the reforms taking place in Sakartvelo. According to the GHN, Georgian Ambassador told that after the Rose Revolution, reforms in the country are carried out in different directions.
In particular, Yakobashvili said: "Transparency International Fund has conducted a study in Georgia, according to which 3 percent of Georgians said that they give or receive bribes or heard about the incident. We are the first country in the fight against corruption. It's not so easy".
Further, the Georgian diplomat drew attention to the Georgian-Russian relations, which, according to the diplomat, are preventing his country from normal development.
"In the neighboring northern state, if you need a passport check, you will see that their border guard is there not to serve, but to catch. They look at you as at a potential enemy ....".
According to him, Georgian passport control officers are mostly women. And they are focused on "serving" the tourists. "This is not a military organization, they are civilians", said Yakobashvili about Georgian customs officers.
