The current situation of IDPs must be included in this report - Davit Zalkaliani

The Foreign Minister of Georgia responds on the US Defense Authorization Act. According to Davit Zalkaliani, the document has a sub-chapter about Georgia with very positive remarks and assessments.

“The Act reaffirms the support of sovereignty, territorial integrity and non-recognition policy. It emphasizes the need for deterring the Russian aggression and touches upon the possibilities of deepening relations in terms of strengthening our defense capacity. The part of the document about the report which should be prepared by the State Secretary in 180 days doesn’t only concern Georgia, but Ukraine, Bosnia–Herzegovina, Moldova too. It also states that the report should include the description of the conditions of IDPs, their status and the issue of the deceased people in the occupied territories lately. The document should review the current security situation.

Naturally, the strengthening of democratic institutions, the steps towards rule of law and fighting corruption are also discussed. It"s no surprise, because this is a sum which the US is spending specifically for those countries”, - said the Minister.
