TBILISI, DFWatch–Georgia will send two separate delegations to the upcoming UN general assembly in New York, one headed by the prime minister and the other by the president.

Similar to what happened last year, there was a debate that lasted for several months about who should represent the country at the United Nations.

Last year, President Giorgi Margvelashvili gave up and canceled his trip to the UN Climate Change summit. Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili represented Georgia at that event.

This year, the two sides agreed to send one delegation including both the PM and the president, but on Sunday it became known that both delegations will go to New York.

The PM will arrive on September 25, and the president on September 27. Garibashvili will address the general assembly on October 1. No details are known about who he will be meeting in New York.

Margvelashvili will visit New York and Washington. At the General Assembly, he will take part in a discussion dedicated to strengthening the role of women, after being invited by the Lithuanian president. Margvelashvili also plans to meet with his Ukrainian colleague Petro Poroshenko.

Both the PM’s and the president’s visit will end on October 2.
