Kaladze believes that the resolution of the European Parliament “has no value”
The politician made this statement while commenting on the discussion in the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament on the annual report on Georgia’s implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU.
The report initiated amendments to ensure freedom of the media in Georgia, a review of Nika Gvaramia’s sentence and the transfer of Mikheil Saakashvili for medical treatment abroad.
“This is not the first time such a resolution has been adopted. It is very unfortunate that a number of incorrect questions are fixed in the resolution, and it can be said frankly that this resolution has no value in terms of its content. Because the population of our country knows perfectly well who Bidzina Ivanishvili is, what he is, what this person has done for our homeland, for the people. Society knows all this very well, and Bidzina Ivanishvili did not start doing all this yesterday or the day before yesterday.
Therefore, I do not agree with what the resolution says. With regard to the European path, we, the government, will do our best to ensure that, in terms of reforms, [осуществления] recommendations from 12 points, everything was done on our part so that Georgia would become a member of the European family as soon as possible,” said Kaladze.
On November 8, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament discussed the annual report on Georgia’s implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU.
The report was amended by a group of European parliamentarians. The amendments concern ensuring freedom of the media in Georgia, reviewing the sentence of Mtavari Arkhi director Nika Gvaramia and transferring ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili for medical treatment abroad.
The amendments were initiated by various MEPs. The authors of the amendments are both partners of the National Movement and other opposition parties, as well as partners of the Georgian Dream.
The Committee on Foreign Relations of the European Parliament adopted the annual report on Georgia with amendments.
