TBILISI, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Georgia’s Ambassador to the United States Temuri Yakobashvili will be replaced, Foreign Minister Maya Pandzhikidze said.
In an interview with the Georgian news agency Pirveli, Pandzhikidze said, “I have already talked with Mr Yakobashvili and I said to him that it will be difficult for us to work with him just it will be hard for him to work with the political force that won the parliamentary elections because he fully supports the policy of the United National Movement that ruled before.”
It is not clear when Yakobashvili, 44, will leave his post he has been held since February 2011 or who will replace him.
All Georgian ambassadors keep working in their respective countries after the parliamentary elections held on October 1. Georgian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Kakha Lomaya said on October 27 that he would submit a letter of resignation to the president, stating his intention to leave the post from January 2013.
Lomaya said, however, that he would “remain a member of the President Saakashvili team”.
