Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili has appointed two new ambassadors on December 12.
Victor Dolidze, a career diplomat, who has served as the State Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration since 2016, will be the country’s ambassador to Geneva-based UN agencies and other international organizations. He will replace Shalva Tsiskarashvili, whose term in office is to expire on January 1, 2018.
Elguja Khokrishvili, who presently serves as a senior adviser at the Georgian Embassy to Germany, was promoted to ambassadorial position in the same country. Khokrishvili will replace Lado Chanturia, who has been elected as the Georgia-nominated judge to the European Court of Human Rights.
The candidacies of Victor Dolidze and Elguja Khokrishvili were presented to the President for confirmation by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili.
President Margvelashvili met the newly appointed ambassadors today and wished them success in their activities.
