Georgian Ambassador to Turkey Giorgi Janjgava said Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and the country’s delegation would be attending Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s inauguration ceremony in Ankara, on Saturday, at the invitation of the latter.
Janjgava noted the ceremony would be attended by the leaders of “more than a hundred” countries, including presidents of Azerbaijan, Bulgaria and Montenegro, Ilham Aliyev, Rumen Radev and Jakov Milatović, as well as prime ministers of Albania and Hungary, Edi Rama and Viktor Orbán, and leaders of various European Union member countries.
High officials of the Middle, Central and Far East will also attend the ceremonial events, the Ambassador said, highlighting Turkey as Georgia’s neighbouring, friendly country and a strategic ally, the Government Administration said.
With 99.43 percent of the vote counted by Turkey’s Supreme Election Council, incumbent Turkish President Erdoğan won the presidential runoff election last week, receiving 52.14 percent of the vote, against his opponent Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu’s 47.86 percent.
By winning the race, he has stretched his rule into the third decade.
