Roman Gotsiridze: the organizers of the summit did not invite the representative of the executive power of Georgia, which is directly in open demarcation - the invitation of Salome Zurabishvili was a political-symbolic load
Josep Borrell: The EU stands by Georgian people’s choice of a democratic country on the EU path
Salome Zurabishvili: The war in Ukraine is a call to action for all of us – let’s strive for a world where peace and justice prevail
Salome Zurabishvili: At the  meeting with Kaja Kallas, we focused on the ongoing political developments in Georgia and our  European aspirations
Salome Zurabishvili: I talked with Charles Michel about the Georgian Charter, roadmap for Georgia aligned with EU recommendations
Salome Zurabishvili: My country can only share the plight of the Ukrainian people, as before Bucha, there was Abkhazia
President of Georgia: The place of Georgia and Ukraine is in Europe
Salome Zurabishvili: Congratulations to Ukraine and Moldova on this important stage on the path of integration into the European Union! - I am sure that the European Georgian nation will soon join your ranks
The President of Georgia went to Switzerland to attend the Ukraine Peace Summit
Salome Zurabishvili: Your rights have been greatly restricted recently due to the passing of the Russian law, organizations are required for some incomprehensible transparency
Salome Zurabishvili: Members of Parliament incite violence, justify it - this is Russian-style politics
Guram Macharashvili: Salome Zurabishvili has turned into a "vetowoman”
Irakli Kadagishvili: The President’s veto will be overridden, as the decision we made was thoughtful and fair - our Election Code is of international, highest standard, even a little higher
Mikheil Saakashvili: The President said to the young people that it turns out that during my time there were "carousels" in the elections - did Mrs. Salome see the mass violations that the whole of Georgia saw in 2018, when she was elected?
Kakha Kaladze: It is a pity that the President has not yet responded to the submission of the Prime Minister and the Speaker of the Parliament regarding awarding the players of the national team with the Order of Honor
Irakli Kadagishvili: Salome Zurabishvili's chances of becoming president again are below the minimum – she lost the voter who elected her
Mikheil Daushvili: If Mrs. Salome is a presidential candidate, it will be a welcome fact - she has full support from us to ensure the future of our country
President makes explanations regarding her initiative relating to referendum
Ambassador of Israel to Georgia - They who start a war and lose are not the victims
Lithuanian Ambassador to Georgia - We wish Georgia to advance, but does Georgia wish to advance? It must prove this; it must be the champion of the champions on its European path - All the doors and windows for the EU integration are being opened - Will they be open forever? I don't know, I'm not sure
Steven Blockmans: If Georgia misses the opportunity to get closer to the EU, it will take a long time to repair the damage caused by the autocratic regime
