Zaal Udumashvili, a member of the United National Movement, labeled the statement by Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili as cynical.
According to Udumashvili, the opposition is ready for the negotiations, but with a precondition that Nika Melia should be sitting at the dialogue table.
“I will try to be soft in my assessment. Gharibashvili’s statement is cynical. This person proposes a dialogue with one hand but orchestrates the raid on the UNM office witnesses by the whole world today with the other. We are ready for the negotiations, but with a precondition that Nika Melia should be sitting at the dialogue table. The second thing is, when it comes to entering parliament, it also has a specific price. This price is the new elections in the country. We are ready to negotiate and discuss specific dates for the new elections,” Zaal Udumashvili said.
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili called on the opposition representatives to chose dialog rather than confrontation.
