German Ambassador to Georgia Hubert Knirsch met with Charles Michel’s Reforms Group on Thursday. Ambassador says he finds it “encouraging to see that Michel’s agreement has this strong support in the Parliament.”
“I was happy to have a good meeting with Charles Michel’s Reform Group in the Georgian Parliament. I want to meet all political groups in Parliament. This is the group that has crystallized around Charles Michel’s agreement. I find it encouraging to see that Michel’s agreement has this strong support in the Parliament. It is also a group that focuses on politics of substance rather than just abstract politics. We talked about many issues, about the importance of judicial reforms, we talked about the connections between Georgia and the EU, and how to bring Georgia closer to the EU. I look forward to working with the Charles Michel Group in the future,” Hubert Knirsch underscored.
German Ambassador says he is “very sorry and concerned to see the divergent opinions between the parties that have signed the Michel-brokered agreement what it means for the appointment of the judges.” Hubert Knirsch believes “Charles Michel’s agreement should be implemented comprehensively, in a good spirit of cooperation of generosity.”
“I am very sorry and concerned to see that the divergent opinions between the parties that have signed the Michel agreement on what it means for the appointment of the judges. Charles Michel’s agreement should be implemented in a comprehensive way, and in a good spirit of cooperation of generosity. The justice system is a very delicate matter. It is highly important to strengthen the confidence and trust of people in the judiciary and for this, it is important to go slowly to consult everybody when new judges are appointed and see that this entire process contributes to strengthening the trust in the judiciary,” the Ambassador stated.
