The Georgian State Security Service (SSS) says that the recent criticism over its agreement with the State Security Committee (KGB) of Belarus against terrorism and corruption is caused by ‘disinformation’ and aims to discredit Georgian security and law enforcement agencies. 

Georgian opposition party Droa and several foreign officials and diplomats have tweeted that the ‘recent agreement’ between Georgian and Belarus intelligence services, following the disputed 2020 elections in Belarus, was alarming and it may cause problems for Belarusian citizens who live or are seeking asylum in Georgia.
