Open letter of Shota Shalelashvili followed by contoversial responces in parliamentary majority

The letter of one of the members of the ruling party, Shota Shalelashvili, where he called on the Prime Minister to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel, caused disagreement in the parliamentary majority.
The initiative was initially acceptable for one part of the ruling team, but after the Prime Minister publicly criticized the open letterand Shalelashvili was summoned to the State Security, the majority preferred to keep silence in the majority.

Zviad Kvachantiradze and Simon Nozadze expressed support to Shota Shalalashvili on social networking, but later did not comment on the issue with journalists.

Mamuka Mdinaradze, chairman of the faction "Georgian Dream" says that hasty decisions on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel should not be taken.
