Mufti of Kobuleti and Guria Aslan Beridze arrived at the Muslim Chapel in Buknari.
"Our people are not demanding the construction of a fundamental building. When we reach an agreement, the appropriate place will probably be allocated. I must emphasize that prayer will not stop. The prayer will continue; it will not disturb anyone. Nothing bad happens here," said Aslan Beridze, Mufti of Kobuleti and Guria.
