Irakli Kobakhidze, the Chair of the ruling Georgian Dream party, on Tuesday said the Government of the ruling Georgian Dream party was the “guarantor” against the scenario of the “second front” of the war in Ukraine being opened in Georgia.
“Today it is the Georgian Dream Government that guarantees that the scenario of the second front will not be implemented in Georgia, which would bring Russian military-political intervention to our country and severe consequences”, Kobakhidze noted.
We are responsible for ensuring that Georgia maintains peace and continues rapid economic growth to ensure a truly European future for our country”, the GD official also said.
Kobakhidze stressed the country would continue its European integration process “with dignity”, in comments following the ruling party’s withdrawal of a controversial bill that called for registration of non-commercial legal entities and media outlets in the country as “agents of foreign influence” if they derived more than 20 percent of their funding from abroad, after public protests against the draft law.
We deeply believe that membership of the European Union is not possible at the expense of giving up dignity and independence - with a slavish attitude and standing on one foot - but only by preserving dignity and independence”, the party Chair said.
