It is an indisputable fact that today the global order is changing. The world will never be the same again. No one can find a way out of this difficult situation alone. We need unity, global cooperation for a new, fairer order. Only by standing together will we be able to achieve this goal, - Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Budapest.
As the head of the government noted, the traditional, supreme, eternal and universal values that determine the country's history and culture give Georgia strength for unity.
"What gives us strength for this unity? First of all, these are the traditional, supreme, eternal, universal values that determine our entire history and culture, our everyday life. These values can be easily expressed - faith, freedom, peace, dignity, truth, equality, sanctity of the family, respect for parents, ancestors, traditions, love for homeland and people, hope for a better future. All that can be summed up in the postulates proposed by Catholicos-Patriarch of Georgia Ilia II, the wisest and most authoritative person in our country - God, motherland, man.
The entire history of Georgia is based on these values. Essentially, these values are gathered in one book - the Gospel. You probably know that our country was one of the first to recognize Christianity as the state religion, back in the fourth century. Around the same time, in the second half of the fourth century, the Gospel was translated into Georgian; However, Christianity was preached here much earlier, by the first apostles of Christ. For two thousand years, our entire history and culture have been defined by the values of the Gospel. These values have always been the basis of Georgian identity, uniting our people. It is thanks to this that the country, which is ancient but small, in a difficult geopolitical situation, located at the epicenter of the clashes between empires and civilizations, has survived the ravages of history that destroyed many great and powerful empires," said the Prime Minister.
