I want to tell the Georgian people that have been remaining in Gali: children don't be afraid, study in Georgian language, as this occupation regime is temporary and soon will finish. You will need your language and culture in future. You should keep your history and try to learn it" - said the President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili.
