Kobakhidze says that the current political situation in Georgia and topics related to former president Mikheil Saakashvili were discussed during the meetings with MEPs. 

We have familiarized them (the MEPs) with our views regarding Georgia’s internal policy,” Kobakhidze said. 

Head of Parliament’s European Integration Committee, Maka Bochorishvili, says that methods of changing the politician situation in the country were discussed. 

We have also discussed democratic reforms which should be carried out in Georgia,” Bochorishvili said.

Opposition MP Salome Samadashvili is also in Strasbourg and is holding separate meetings with MEPs. 

She says that the key topic of her meetings is Saakashvili and the upcoming Eastern Partnership summit.
