He was referring to the press reports about alleged incident between him and the PM, which preceded Mgaloblishvili departure to Germany. Those reports were first circulated in the Georgian press and then picked by the Russian media sources.

Saakashvili made the remarks at the meeting the PM during which he discussed planned road reconstruction projects. Head of the road department, Ramaz Nikoleishvili, and state minister for regional issues, Davit Tkeshelashvili, also attended the meeting.
