Christian Democratic Movement of Georgia has commented on the concerns of the Patriarchate of Georgian Orthodox Church, which said earlier that the negotiations between the Georgian and Turkish sides regarding the restoration of Georgia`s historic monuments on the territory of Turkey and rehabilitation of mosques on the territory of Georgia was conducted by rough violation of constitutional agreement between the government of Georgia and the Patriarchate.
