TBILISI, November 26. /TASS/. Georgia’s parliament endorsed Giorgi Kvirikashvili as prime minister of the new Georgian cabinet on Saturday. Georgia’s parliament voted 110-19 in favor of the new government.
Georgia’s new prime minister promised to the lawmakers that "Georgia’s government will keep implementing measures aimed at development of trade and economic cooperation with the Russian Federation."
"We have set out a goal to improve and develop trade and economic cooperation with the Russian Federation along with a goal to create pre-conditions for resolving in the future the most complicated issues accumulated in both countries’ relations," Kvirikashvili said.
The parliament endorsed Giorgi Gvakharia as minister for economy and sustainable development, Zurab Alavidze as minister for regional development and infrastructure, Viktor Dolidze as minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration, Dmitri Kumsishvili as first deputy prime minister and finance minister.
