Transparency is the main cornerstone of European integration and one of the main values that brought Georgia closer to the European family - Darchiashvili

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia said today that the bill “On the Transparency of Foreign Influence”, reintroduced by the Georgian Dream in the Parliament, could not impede Georgia’s European integration process.

“Transparency is the main cornerstone of European integration and one of the main values that brought Georgia closer to the European family. The draft law is not related to integration into the EU in any way and it should not be discussed.

Georgia has been implementing very actively and consistently all the mandatory reforms that we have in the format of the bilateral agreement between Georgia and the European Union. Georgia had a very clear action plan to fulfil the priorities outlined by the European Commission for opening accession talks with the country.

We [the Government of Georgia] assume responsibility for all our obligations. Georgia will definitely move to the next, most important phase - the opening of accession talks with the EU.

The Government would discuss the transparency bill with the country’s international partners to provide accurate information about the draft law”, - said Ilia Darchiashvili.
