“After our meeting, I engaged in dialogue with various parties involved in Georgia’s political crisis. While progress was made, it became apparent to me that there would continue to be unresolved differences between the opposition and the ruling party.
Democracy is not easy, and while protests are normal in a free country, they must remain peaceful. As well, citizens should live with the assurance that their justice system fill be fair to all, independent, and without regard for political affiliation,” Kinzinger stressed.
Adam Kinzinger concluded that “in Georgia compromises must be made by all parties involved to achieve the democracy and freedoms they seek.”
Co-chair of the House Georgia Caucus noted that he “remains steadfastly committed to the strong and enduring U.S.-Georgia relationship.”
