No one has the right to overshadow our historical achievement – tolerance, - President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili says in a statement issued by the Presidential Administration.

 

Salome Zurabishvili notes that freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Constitution.

 

"I want to respond to the confrontation between our Muslim and Christian compatriots in Guria. It is a sad fact and I hope that the situation will be resolved in the near future.

 

Georgia has always been proud of its religious diversity. This is the wealth of our country, one of the foundations of our strength, and we have always taken care of it.

 

Freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Constitution. Religious services and rituals are the right of our citizens and no one can restrict them.

 

This conflict is one of the few cases, but it must be said that no one has the right to overshadow our historical achievements, to question the peaceful coexistence of religions in Georgia, tolerance, the unity and dignified coexistence of citizens of different faiths," reads the statement.
