Regrettably, I more hear speculations with regard to TBC Bank than argumentative responses, - Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze said.
He urged everyone to wait for the results of the investigation.
"My personal opinion, as well as of my team and any sensible person, is that when our financial institutions, especially companies, are represented on the international stock exchange, this is a big achievement and should take care of it. In addition, international financial institutions note that our financial sector is particularly sustainable in the region and it is a very important achievement.
I am far from the idea that if questions are raised in realtion to any individual shareholder, this will result in the weakening of this great achievement. Regrettably, I more hear speculations with regard to TBC Bank than argumentative responses. If there are questions about any individual shareholder, I do not think it is a problem to answer these questions," Mamuka Bakhtadze said.
To the journalist's remark that TBC Bank is Mamuka Khazaradze and Badri Japaridze, Bakhtadze responded that TBC Bank, as well as any other bank, represents the financial stability of the Georgian financial sector.
"Personification is not right. I think that any question should be raised and answered, and I cannot agree with the idea that this can negatively affect Georgia's financial stability, because it is far from the reality.
It is a great achievement for us that our companies are on the London Stock Exchange. I want to thank all those who contributed to this, because this has opened a way for the Georgian companies to have access to international capital. Our financial stability is very high and this is confirmed by all international financial institutions," said Mamuka Bakhtadze.
