"Relations between Georgia and the United Kingdom are in the best form. Your country faces challenges in the defense and security issues . Russia is trying to strengthen its illegal presence in the region. Moscow is decisive to do so. Russia must destroy the barbed wire fences and respect the international order based on the rule of law. Georgia has proven to be part of this order. Elections were held in free environment here. This means that democracy is developing in Georgia and I urge you to continue this path. One of the main signs of democracy is to understand that NGOs can criticize the government in the power.
We support the work of NGOs in Georgia to improve the accountability of the government, "said Sir Allan Duncan, State Minister of Great Britain.
