The Georgian Government Administration on Wednesday highlighted the country’s constitution designated its foreign policy conduct to the Government, after it rejected requests by the office of President Salome Zourabichvili for approving her visits to a number of countries.
The Administration said the President exercised “representative powers in foreign relations only with the consent of the Government”, in a comment that followed the Presidential office’s release on Wednesday of information about Zourabichvili’s upcoming visit to Germany.
Noting her office had asked the Government to approve the visit on July 12, the Government Administration added it had “officially” rejected the request on August 3 “in writing, according to a relevant article of the constitution”.
It also said it had denied requests from Zourabichvili for official visits to Ukraine, Switzerland, Poland, Belgium, Denmark, the United Arab Emirates, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Israel.
