Alexander KAFFKA, editor-in-chief of CJ: Hello, and welcome to Caucasian Journal video interviews. Our guests today are Tina KHIDASHELI — leader of Civic IDEA, Georgian non-governmental organization, and former defense minister of Georgia, and Kristin Krohn DEVOLD — former defense minister of Norway, and currently head of Norwegian Travel Association, who joins us online.
Dear Tina, first thank you very much for giving this interview. Tina, you have many “hats”: an experienced politician and a legal expert, head of a leading Georgian non-governmental organization, and of course former defense minister — the first and actually the only female defense minister in this country.
