Police is our state, it was an attack on our state - Irakli Zarqua on the statement of MEP Petras Auštrevičius

Yesterday, we once again heard how some European parliamentarians, lobbyists of the party of torturers – [United] National Movement [UNM] - are trying to make the European Parliament lose the value that the European Union has. Such a statement made today MP from the Georgian Dream, Irakli Zarkua.

“We once again heard how some European parliamentarians, lobbyists of the party of torturers - UNM - are trying to make the European Parliament lose the value that the EU has. There is a reasonable suspicion that they received a new message yesterday, it was probably written and everyone was reading it. As we saw earlier, lobbying companies are writing letters for them. Kubilius, Fotyga, etc., one after another, try to insult the Georgian state. Our work situation is to adopt laws that are in the interests of our country, and because of that we are criticized and sanctions are also being considered. What we saw yesterday is what Europe and the European Parliament should not be like.

I would like to ask the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to summon the Lithuanian ambassador and specifically demand an answer to the insulting statements made by their MEP about our police officers. It seems that he couldn’t read what was written - he got the name wrong, but we understood what he was talking about”, - said Irakli Zarkua.

Petras Auštrevičius appealed to the institutions of the EU to introduce sanctions against Zviad Kharebashvili and Vazha Siradze, because according to him, these people are acting against the will of the Georgian people.
