The Chairman of the Parliament Archil Talakvadze calls on the facilitators of the March 8 talks between the Government and the opposition to publicly confirm that the ruling party has not undertaken an obligation to release Gigi Ugulava, Irakli Okruashvili or Giorgi Rurua.
“The opposition enjoys the fact that the negotiations on the agreement were not public, and also that the diplomatic rules require maximum restraint from the ambassadors in terms of disclosing the contents of closed meetings. They are using this factor for speculations. Our society and our foreign friends are tired of these groundless speculations.
The facilitator Ambassadors played an invaluable role in the successful end of negotiations. We once again express our gratitude for their efforts and support, which, for the first time in the history of our country, made it possible to hold elections in a system based on full consensus among political parties. It is alarming that this result of the Ambassadors’ efforts could be jeopardized by the irresponsibility of the radical opposition.
In order to end the speculations and ensure the implementation of the agreement, we ask the facilitators to shed light on the content of the talks, in particular. We ask them to publicly confirm that the government has not undertaken an obligation to give illegal instructions to the President, court or Prosecutor’s Office and to release Gigi Ugulava, Irakli Okruashvili or Giorgi Rurua”, - said Archil Talakvadze during the special briefing.
