MEPs are trying to make irrelevant changes in resolution, Kobakhidze says

According to chairman of Georgian Dream Irakli Kobakhidze, MEPs are trying to make irrelevant changes in the resolution.

"The first text that was prepared is balanced and it reflects Georgia's progress in implementing the Association Agreement, however, we see that there are the same odious MEPs who are trying to make absolutely irrelevant and untrue changes to the resolution.

These people have a direct connection with the general coordination, the goal of which is to open a second front in Georgia. Of course, they are not lobbyists of the National Movement, because the National Movement does not have the resources for them to work at such a level on the foreign front. Actually, they are allies of each other, the National Movement is more of an ally of these people than they are allies of the National Movement. A wise man will understand all this.

I will repeat once again that there is a global war party, whose representatives are these odious MEPs, and they are driven by the sole goal of provoking in Georgia the processes that, unfortunately, are taking place in Ukraine today," said Irakli Kobakhidze.

"We would like to respond to the European Parliament's foreign affairs committee's support of the report related to Georgia yesterday. It is very clear that the fact is confirmed once again that the Georgian Dream does not intend to fulfill the 12 recommendations set by the European Commission in the summer. On the contrary, during these 4 months, the Georgian Dream has taken a number of steps to, which contradicts the spirit of Article 12. Therefore, the most important thing we can do is consolidate. This does not only apply to the opposition, but to any member of society who values the European future of this country.

The document practically talks not about progress and getting closer to the perspective, but about setbacks and regression.

This It depends only on the political will and desire to get closer to Europe," Khoshtaria said.
