Georgia is in full compliance with the financial sanctions imposed by the international community against Russia due to its invasion of Ukraine, Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani said on Thursday.
Zalkaliani underlined Georgia had "done its best" to support partners on international platforms - the United Nations Security Council and General Assembly - where the Government co-sponsored two resolutions against the invasion.
We are in full compliance with the financial sanctions imposed by the international community [against Russia]. The National Bank of Georgia has already made it clear that Georgia is complying with its obligations and international standards,” the Foreign Minister said.
On March 25, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution calling for protection of civilians amid the ongoing war in Ukraine, co-sponsored by 90 states including Georgia, with overwhelming support.
On March 2, Georgia voted on a UN General Assembly resolution to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, joining 140 other countries in the vote.
The resolution demands Russia “immediately, completely and unconditionally” withdraw all of its military from the territory of Ukraine “within its internationally recognised borders.”
