Georgia’s PM: ‘We Follow Developments in Turkey with Great Concern’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 16 Jul.'16 / 03:53

Georgia’s PM Giorgi Kvirikashvili said Tbilisi is following developments in neighboring Turkey, where coup attempt is underway, with “great concern”.

In remarks shortly before an emergency session of the National Security Council, which was convened to discuss developments in Turkey and their possible implications on Georgia, the PM said that Tbilisi could close border with Turkey, which is Georgia’s largest trading partner.

“We follow developments in Turkey with great concern… We hope that situation will calm down soon,” PM Kvirikashvili said.

“Control on boarders has been tightened. We will probably close all the border crossing points with Turkey soon. So far there is no turmoil in northeastern parts of Turkey, which border with Georgia. On our side the situation is under control,” the PM said. He also said that flights to Turkey have been “suspended”. Flights to and from Istanbul are among the busiest at the Tbilisi International Airport.
