Georgia’s national security council convened on Friday to discuss global and regional challenges on the backdrop of Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and the progress of the work on the country’s national security concept, the government press office said. 

Chaired by prime minister Irakli Garibashvili, the meeting saw the officials note the security document had been ready for submission to the parliament in February, before the “dramatic changes” in the global security environment brought by the Russia-Ukraine conflict late during the month necessitated amendments.
