By burning all bridges with Russia, Georgia has turned into a slave of Turkey. During Georgian PM’s meeting with his Turkish counterpart last week, Georgian flag was not displayed next to Turkish flag, proving that Ankara does not accept Georgia as an independent, sovereign state, but as a vassal country only.

Summary of Disinformation

By burning all bridges with Russia, Georgia has turned into a slave of Turkey. During Georgian PM’s meeting with his Turkish counterpart last week, Georgian flag was not displayed next to Turkish flag, proving that Ankara does not accept Georgia as an independent, sovereign state, but as a vassal country only.

Disproof

No evidence given. Turkey recognized the independence of Georgia on 16 December 1991. Turkey’s relations with Georgia are at strategic level. Turkey has been the biggest trade partner of Georgia since 2007 and among the leading investor countries to Georgia. Turkey strongly supports territorial integrity of Georgia and does not recognize the so-called independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.bit.ly/2pOfclm,
