According to the statement of the Speaker of the Parliament, Shalva Papuashvili, he hopes that President Salome Zurabishvili's speech in Brussels will be focused on encouraging the European integration of the country and not on hindering this process.
"I cannot predict the content of her speech in advance. I hope, now at this special moment, it will be the speech of the President of Georgia, which will be focused on encouraging the European integration of the country, and not the other way around, on hindering this process", said Papuashvili.
He declined to assess President Salome Zurabishvili's critical statements about the Government.
"I don't want to get into a controversy with the President. I would just like one thing, everything has its place, form, tradition. I mean the mood at the parade, including the speeches. It should certainly be a high mood when we are delivering a speech in front of our country's army, when recruits are taking the oath. Therefore, it is important that the speeches of the highest officials of the country be full of this spirit. This is a solemn day and it should have an appropriate content and form," said Papuashvili.
