We expect the European Union will think politically again that it has an important decision to make regarding Georgia, stated Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili.
He mentioned that HR/VP Borrell’s visit was significant and productive, encompassing high-level political meetings as well as technical discussions.
“The European Commissioner’s delegation had extensive discussions on recommendations and exchanged essential ideas about fulfilling EU recommendations. The Georgian Parliament is committed to addressing these issues. We expect an evaluation of our activities and hope the EU will again think politically that it has an important decision to accept.
Last year, the decision for all three countries appeared to be more political than merit-based, and, unfortunately, the EU made a wrong decision when it oppressed a leading country, and did not grant it candidate status.
It was a message not only to the Georgian people, which, of course, causes disappointment but to those who are not well-wishers of Georgia.
It is vital for the European Union to comprehend once again what future plans it has for Georgia and make the right decision based on it,” said Shalva Papuashvili.
