German Chancellor Angela Merkel has sent a letter to the new prime minister of Georgia Giorgi Gakharia wishing him success in his “mission full of responsibility.” 

The letter has been released by the administration of the government of Georgia.

Merkel said that German-Georgian relations continue to develop strongly in many fields, citing the cooperation in the Eastern Partnership and the NATO-Georgia commission formats in particular. 

Gakharia, who previously served as Georgia’s interior minister, replaced Mamuka Bakhtadze in the post on September 8.
