Mikheil Chkhenkeli: “May 26 is an extremely important date in the history of our country – Georgia’s Independence Day, our main national holiday, which unites us, every Georgian!
I cordially congratulate the whole of Georgia on the Independence Day of our country, including the citizens of Georgia living abroad and living in the occupied territories.
The idea of freedom of Georgia has always been and is the main driving force of our nation. We all know very well what a difficult and challenging path Georgia went through before declaring independence. I want to thank all the people who, for centuries, have sacrificed themselves in the struggle for independence – the fact that we live in a free country today is a credit to their heroism and dedication!
Today, Georgia is closer to returning to the European family than ever before. By submitting an application for EU membership, our country has once again clearly made a historic choice – to strive for Georgia’s European future!
I believe that with our values, rich history and culture, we will soon regain our rightful place in the European space.
Once again, congratulations to everyone on this important holiday; I wish you peace, prosperity and success! “
