Thanking the German people and its government for "this important gift” Kvirikashvili said today is a special day as it reminds everyone of breaking the wall that separated German people.

The wall erupted by evil will also break down in Georgia and it will do peacefully because any time when the civilized world stands together, such a result is feasible through straightforward, right steps and brave policy”, Kvirikashvili stated.

German Ambassador to Georgia Heike Peitsch said this piece of a wall proves that nothing is impossible in life. Peitsch believes that one day Georgian territorial integrity will also be restored.
