According to the Georgian foreign ministry, Unity Dow expressed support to Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
“Every country is important no matter how small, no matter how poor, no matter how rich… the world demands that each and every corner of the world be heard. Otherwise, the loud voices will shut down the small ones and we cannot allow that to happen,” Dow said at the press briefing.
She will also travel to village Khurvaleti of Gori Municipality, at the edge of the Russian-occupied Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia, as well as the Tserovani settlement for IDPs from the region.
