Georgian President-elect Salome Zurabishvili had told the international media that Russia has to be held accountable for its aggression in Georgia and Ukraine.

She told Israeli i24NEWS that the international community should take active steps to terminate Russia’s occupation of Georgian and Ukrainian territories as the two countries should not live under permanent threat.

She told the i24NEWS and Euronews that the EU and NATO are her and the Georgian people’s choice, inscribed in the constitution, and she, as a former French and European diplomat, will use all her contacts and levers to boost fast integration into Euro-Atlantic structures.

She spoke about Black Sea stability initiated by “Georgia’s very important partner, NATO” and Georgia’s role in the preservation of peace in the region.

Zurabishvili also mentioned “very strong” Georgia-Israeli ties and said that the nations could further boost their cooperation in the defence field.
