We distance from and strongly condemn the anti-Western campaign launched by the ruling party and some MPs, reads the statement released by several opposition deputies.
The statement calls on the ruling party to halt disinformation and anti-Western campaigns.
“We distance from and strongly condemn the anti-Western campaign launched by the ruling party and some MPs, which particularly intensified recently against the US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan and European parliamentarians who are friends of Georgia.
Such disinformation campaigns would lead Georgia to lose strategic friends, confuse our partners and weaken their support for Georgia. The ruling party puts the country’s security at huge risk as being internationally isolated and left without friends will leave Georgia alone in the face of occupant Russia.
Opposition MPs say that the US always supported Georgia during critical days. Since the independence, US aid to Georgia has reached USD 5 billion.
“We call on the ruling party to halt disinformation and anti-Western campaigning and take steps to implement the reforms necessary to obtain candidate status. We initiated an extraordinary session. Civil society and experts widely support it. Georgian President also shared the initiative and called an extraordinary session starting July 18. The goal of our initiative is to take immediate steps to demonstrate political will and real readiness to work around the 12 points,” says the statement signed by MPS Teona Akubardia, Khatuna Samnidze, Tamar Kordzaia and Ana Buchukuri.
