According to Sven Mikser, the committee approved a compromise text, which was reached as a result of negotiations between political groups.
“Now the report is submitted to the plenary session of the European Parliament. Plenary changes are possible, this requires a certain number of signatures, and if there are proposals for changes, they will be voted on at the plenary meeting. The final result will be adopted by the opinion of the majority of the Parliament,” said Sven Mikser.
In addition, the journalists asked Sven Mikser a question about former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili.
“There were appeals, and the document stated that Mikheil Saakashvili should be able to receive proper treatment abroad. This is a humanitarian stance prompted by concerns about his health. This is not the position of the parliament in terms of criminal charges against him, this is a purely humanitarian point of view. We also believe that this will resolve the political impasse in the country,” said Sven Mikser.
The Committee on Foreign Relations of the European Parliament adopted Sven Mikser’s annual report on Georgia with compromise amendments on 8 November. The report was supported by 47 MEPs, five were against, two abstained.
