The European Union calls on all parties to work intensively to neutralize the political situation. Such a statement made today the President of the European Council after the meeting with the President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili.
“My visit comes against the background of an aggravated political crisis. That, of course, worries the European Union and me personally. The EU calls on all parties to work intensively to neutralize the situation.
I will have an opportunity to have a frank and open conversation with the Prime Minister, the Chairman of the Parliament, and the opposition parties’ leaders. I know that political debate requires leadership and the involvement of all parties.
I am sure that Georgia has every opportunity to take on this challenge. It can consolidate democratic bases not only in the EU but also to protect human rights, fulfill citizens’ choices, create political stability based on open democracy, independent and representative judiciary.
That will strengthen relations between Georgia and the EU. The Association Agreement reflects these very ambitious goals. It demonstrates the commitments of the European side and Georgia”, - said Charles Michel.
