Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.
During a visit to the Czech Republic, Georgian Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze again refused from her anti-Armenian statements, RFE/RL Georgian Service reported. Thus, Panjikidze refutes media reports that in Lithuania she had allegedly declared that she sees the Karabakh conflict's resolution only within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. She explained that after her report in the Lithuanian parliament, Ambassador of Azerbaijan asked a
question about Georgia's attitude to the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. Panjikidze answered that Georgia supports the territorial integrity of that country.
Afterwards, Armenian Ambassador to Lithuania addressed her with a question whether there is a single recipe to settle all the conflicts. In response, Panjikidze said that the conflicts are unique and there is no single recipe to settle them.
Panjikidze refused to comment on the Georgian media rumors that after the scandal that aroused after the above statement, she will be replaced by Irakly Menagarishvili, the former foreign minister of Georgia.
The minister also touched upon the Russian-Georgian relations saying that they try to improve the relations with Russia, but no positive results can be expected within the coming one-two years.
