“What I can say is that a compromise of this kind is difficult for all and it will call for the political will to make the necessary move. But it seems to me that the overarching interest here is the national interest of Georgia,” Christian Danielsson, special envoy of the European Council President Charles Michel, told GPB after the meeting with the negotiating parties in Georgia.
Answering the question of which side is less ready to compromise in the negotiation process and which issue is closer to an agreement, Danielsson refused to go into details.
“I’m not ready to go into details. What I can say is that a compromise of this kind is difficult for all. It will call for the political will to make the necessary move. But, it seems to me that the overarching interest here is the national interest of Georgia. And that is to come out of this political crisis and be able to get focus on the real issues that is the Covid pandemic, that is the economy, that is also to look into the national security of Georgia, and, of course, also the European path of Georgia,” EU Danielsson told GPB.
EU mediator Christian Danielsson returned to Tbilisi on Sunday to help the opposition and the government reaching an agreement. Danielsson said he would stay in Georgia for three days. He has already met the Georgian NGOs, PM, President, the ruling party and the opposition. Expanded meeting of all the parties is planned on Tuesday.
