Tamar Taliashvili Responding to Ban of Georgian as Language of Instruction in Schools of Gali and Akhalgori Regions

The prohibition on Georgian language educataion in schools of the Gali and Akhalgori regions has prompted Tamar Taliashvili, Deputy Chairperson of the Education and Science Committee, to respond.

According to her, the government is in active communication with the Geneva Talks' co-chairs, as well as the EU Monitoring Mission and all partner organizations, for this aim.

"As you may be aware, studying in one's mother tongue is one of the most fundamental rights guaranteed by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as well as a concept enshrined in international law.

Our compatriots are prohibited from studying in Georgian in Gali and Akhalgori, which is really upsetting. This is a troubling situation about which our administration is already in contact with the Geneva Talks' co-chairs, as well as the EU Monitoring Mission and all other partner organizations. Our government shall do everything possible to restore this right”, - T. Taliashvili stated.
