Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili has been gifted a series of historic letters exchanged between Foreign Minister of the First Democratic Republic Republic of Georgia Akaki Chkhenkeli and Sir Eric Drummond, first secretary-general of the League of Nations, which took place before the Soviet Union occupied Georgia in 1921.

It is a special gift,” Zurabishvili said, who is a descendant of an official of the First Democratic Republic of Georgia Niko Nokoladze, who had to leave Georgia in 1921 and live in emigration in France, where Zurabishvili was born.
