“We welcome the agreement reached in Georgia on April 19 to bring an end to the country’s political crisis,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price declared at the daily briefing.
The US Department of State underlines that the deal reached under the auspices of the European Council President Charles Michel required compromises by all sides.
“This agreement, reached under the auspices of the EU President Michel’s mediation, required difficult compromises by all sides. Above all, it required political courage and a commitment to the people of Georgia to continue the hard work of building democratic institutions and strengthening the rule of law. It’s a sign of the important progress for Georgia’s democratic development. Implementation, of course, will be equally important, and we invite individual members of parliament and the remaining parties to sign the agreement so that all of Georgia’s elected representatives can begin working together on the pressing issues facing Georgia. The United States is committed to assisting the Georgian parliament to ensure this agreement achieves its aspirations, and as always, we stand ready to support Georgia on its path of full integration with the Euro-Atlantic family of nations,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price stated.
Most of the Georgian political parties signed A way ahead for Georgia, a compromise document submitted to the parties by the European Council President Charles Michel, at the Orbeliani Palace on April 19.
