Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia has met Muslim religious leaders at the government's administration and congratulated Muslim residents of Georgia on the Ramazan Bayram Festival.
"We are honored to congratulate our Muslim citizens on Ramazan Bayram Festival. This is the day of reconciliation, love, and care. We all serve this country, and we all together belong to Georgia. We have a century-old tradition of serving this country, and, most importantly, we do respect each other's beliefs and convictions. Once again, I wish you a blessed Ramazan and wish you everyone to make a contribution, either significant or insignificant, to the development of our country," the PM said, adding that the tiny multi-ethnic country of Georgia, in which everyone can coexist peacefully, is setting an example to the entire world.
