"Students will be called up for military service only on a voluntary basis", Georgian Defense Minister Juansher Burchuladze said on Imedi.

According to him, certain groups are trying to mislead students and it is in their interests to show students the content of this reform in a new way.

The Minister of Defense explained the conditions under which students will have to undergo military service from 2025.

"I want to emphasize once again that students will be called up for military service only on a voluntary basis. There will be several different, most convenient ways. I think we will also have the opportunity to give students with higher education the opportunity to undergo compulsory service for one month a year according to the program that we offer to students", said Juansher Burchuladze.

According to the Minister, the purpose of the changes provided for in the Defense Code is to ensure that Georgia has a strong prepared reserve.

Juansher Burchuladze noted that the new program will not cause inconvenience to either students or the population.
