"We discussed the main findings of the UN-led research and a number of issues in this regard, including the research based on which we know that a significant portion of our fellow citizens are still facing the problems for the solution of which the government plan is needed. We expect a specific action plan from the government regarding the welfare of the population, "Talakvadze said.

According to Archil Talakvadze, the Government is now waiting for the action plan.
