Georgia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) says the return of the Georgian ambassador to Ukraine depends on steps to be taken by the Ukrainian government.

"Naturally, recalling the ambassador for consultations does not mean breaking diplomatic relations between the two countries, and the strategic partnership between the two countries is not planned to be revised," the ministry told Georgia's First Channel, according to the media outlet Georgia Online.

"Georgia continues work with Ukraine on a number of strategic issues – be it issues related to the occupation of territories, the process of European and Euro-Atlantic integration, cooperation on a regular basis. Naturally, we will keep track of what steps the Ukrainian authorities will take to normalize relations with Georgia, and the decision on the date of the ambassador's return to Ukraine will be made accordingly," the ministry said.

Georgia's Foreign Ministry on May 25 held the first ad hoc meeting with Georgian Ambassador to Ukraine Teimuraz Sharashenidze as part of consultations to hear the ambassador's update and discuss prospects for the two countries' relations.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Georgia decided to recall its ambassador from Ukraine after the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili as head of the Executive Committee of the National Reforms Council of Ukraine.

At the same time, the Georgian authorities assured that the move did not mean a break-up of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
