Ali Kaan Orbay, the Turkish Ambassador in Georgia, on Tuesday said his country and Georgia represented  “pillars of stability” in the South Caucasus despite “quite challenging” security environment in the region.

Addressing a joint session of the Committees of Foreign Relations, Diaspora and Caucasus Affairs in the Georgian Parliament, the diplomat claimed the states had remained “safe, strong and stable pillars of stability” despite the challenges, and noted “Georgia fulfils its duty of a safe country very well”. 

Pointing to the ongoing occupation of the 20 percent of the Georgian territory by Russia, the Ambassador expressed his hope the country would reintegrate its regions peacefully, before reaffirming his Government's “strong support” for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. 

Hailing “exemplary bilateral ties”, the diplomat said the cooperation had been developing “steadily and successfully” over the years, with “all agreements” fulfilled.
