The new prime minister, with him I have spoken, will have to work with president Saakashvili for the good of the people. It is essential for Georgia`s future, the spirit is calmed and well managed. The EU`s engagement is with Georgia as a whole ready to work and help and support political cooperation and economic integration as well as great mobility.
