Harlem Désir will present to the president of Georgia a selection of archival documents from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development on official relations between France and the leaders of the first Georgian Republic, who were exiled to France following the occupation of Georgia in 1921 by the Red Army. This ceremony will be attended by some of their French descendants.

This event will provide an opportunity to celebrate France’s steadfast support throughout history for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia.
