TBILISI, November 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Georgy Margvelashvili, who has won a victory at the Georgian presidential elections on October 27, took officially the post of country’s president here on Sunday.
The presidential inauguration ceremony is being held in the courtyard of the parliament building in the Georgian capital. Margvelashvili has taken the oath of allegiance to the country’s Constitution and read out the text of the specific oath.
Georgia “is prepared to broaden dialogue with Russia” with due account of country’s interests, “internationally recognized borders” and “the respect to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country,” sworn-in Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili said in his speech at the presidential inauguration ceremony.
“Despite the current hard situation we state that the country is prepared to deepen the dialogue with Russia and to conduct this process simultaneously with Georgia’s integration in European and Euro-Atlantic structures,” he said. “We are prepared to settle all problems in the relations with Russia on a basis of mutual trust,” Margvelashvili noted.
