“Sadly, I must note that there was not that willingness today around the table to reach such a compromise,” Christian Danielsson, a personal envoy of the European Council President Charles Michel, reported after the hours-long joint meeting between the ruling party and the opposition.
Danielsson noted that he would report to President Michel on the developments of this week.
“Sadly, I must note that there was not that willingness today around the table to reach such a compromise. I will now report to President Michel on the developments of this week and it will naturally be up to him to decide on the next steps and timing of such steps. I will end with the world to all of Georgia’s citizens. I know your level of expectation and I fully share your frustration, but I also welcome all efforts throughout the process. NGOs made some really useful proposals and the media kept a high level of scrutiny throughout the process holding the political leaders accountable. As I return to Brussels I will take back with me this confidence that such a vibrant civil society Georgia will one day manage to turn the page and head for an ambitious future. And, of course, the European Union will remain ready to support Georgia’s every step on the way,” Christian Danielsson concluded.
