“Georgia is a guest of honour that is the right place for the European Union“, EU supreme representative in foreign and security policy issues, European Commission vice President Federica Mogherini noted at the inaugural ceremony of Frankfurt Book Fair.
It is much honour for me to unveil the 70th exhibition of Frankfurt Book Fair, Mogherini said.
I want to be very sincere – I am always, but tonight I will put an additional element of “personal touch” in what I will share with you. My first thought, when I received this invitation, has been: “What an honour!” There are two reasons that are self-evident.
The first one is that wherever Georgia is a guest of honour that is the right place for the European Union to be. And the second one is that wherever human rights are celebrated, promoted, protected, that is the right place for the EU to be, Federica Mogherini noted, Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze also delivered his speech at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
