I cannot think of a better place to be right now than here in Georgia, EU Ambassador Carl Hartzell said in his video address, congratulating Georgia on its effective covid-19 response and urging everyone to take care of each other.
„I am reporting from home. These are clearly unprecedented times for Georgia and the rest of the world. Due to the corona pandemic the world is turning upside down, with no easy answers. We in the European Union probably know this better than most, just look at the pictures coming out of Spain and Italy these days. In this context I would like to congratulate the Georgian government and the Georgian politicians for doing what all evidence suggest is the right approach – to act early and to act robustly.
Moreover, I would like to applaud the population here of Georgia for supporting these measures and for acting responsibly in order to stem the spreading of the virus. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt admiration for the medical professionals, for doctors and nurses, for law enforcement and border guards and others who are working tirelessly these day for the safety and security of everyone here. This crisis is not only a health crisis but also a tremendous economic challenge. Therefore, I am proud to be working alongside other international partners under the leadership of the Georgian government to properly assess the needs and to set out a way ahead.
The European Union stands with Georgia. The European Union is Georgia’s largest donor and strongest partner and we will remain that. In addition, we are looking at special measures, for the economy, for business and to help the most vulnerable groups of society. This will be a long process no doubt, but we are in this together.
These are times to take care of each other. As for me, personally, despite these difficult times, I cannot think of a better place to be right now, than right here in Georgia. Take care. Stay committed“, Carl Hartzell said.
