Several days before, international secretary of Georgian Labour Party, Beka Natelashvili made a speech on a special conference of asian political parties in Turkey. Here is the full text of the speech.
It is an honour and privilege for me to be here today, in Turkey, which Is our strategic partner based on common values and strategic interests including democracy, human rights, the rule of law, visa-free regime to European Union, open markets and free trade. And, Turkey is not only our strategic partner, it is our neighbor, our friend and the biggest trade partner of Georgia. Turkey strongly supports our territorial integrity and does not recognize the independence of Abkhazia and Samachablo (so called, South Ossetia) just as we support Turkey's democratically elected government and peace in this region.
