The ruling Georgian Dream party has called on ‘all political parties, international organisations and NGOs’ to express their views on the anti-western attitudes and actions’ of the United National Movement (UNM) opposition party. 

The statement follows the words of one of the leaders of the UNM Nika Melia that he ‘lacks obvious reactions’ from the US and EU ambassadors to Georgia on the ongoing political crisis and the trials of opposition leaders. 

Melia said that ‘not being clear’ may be regarded as a ‘betrayal of the US-Georgia strategic partnership’. 

The ruling party says that ‘what the UNM is doing is very dangerous’ and has urged everyone ‘to refrain from attacking our strategic partners.’
