TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2014-02-12

Irakli Gharibashvili, Georgian prime minister

Appointed as Georgian premier three months ago at the age of 31, Irakli Gharibashvili has pledged to normalise relations with Russia while signing a far-reaching association agreement with the EU. It is likely to be a difficult balancing act for this small Caucasus nation still haunted by memories of the 2008 war with Moscow, which saw Georgia lose 20% of its territory.
