The annual report on Georgia with compromise amendments, adopted by the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Relations, will be put for voting at the plenary session in December, said MEP Sven Mikser at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
According to Sven Mikser, the Committee approved a compromise text negotiated among the political groups. The decision will be made with the majority of votes.
Journalists asked the MEP about putting ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili’s issue in the document. Mikser answered that Saakashvili should be allowed to receive medical treatment abroad.
“This is a humanitarian position due to his health concerns,” the MEP said, adding the issue “could solve political deadlock in the country.”
The European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Relations on November 8 adopted Sven Mikser’s annual report on Georgia with compromise amendments. 47 MEPs voted in favour of the document, five opposed it, and two abstained.
