“Maybe he is not well informed or there is miscommunication again – I don’t think there was an attack on the US Ambassador by any representative of the government,” Georgian Dream deputy Mikheil Sarjveladze responded to the statement of US State Department spokesperson Ned Price on Georgia.
Sarjveladze also claims that the situation is “not as dramatic” as some journalists try to portray it.
“I can’t agree with that and I don’t think it’s a correct assessment. As to the issues that have been discussed in public: the judge came out and said what he said. Questions arose in the public on this issue. Politicians also had questions. Yesterday, before Ned Price’s statement, I said that it would be good to see some clarity in this. I don’t have the feeling that in this case there are some disasters, violations of the law and so on, especially in light of the fact that the Ambassador herself explained that there may be some disagreements, different views among friends and it is necessary to talk about this,” he said.
For the record, the spokesman of the US State Department, Ned Price, opened the briefing yesterday by talking about Georgia.
He noted that disinformation and personal attacks on Ambassador Degnan or her team are not consistent with how partners communicate with one another. Price stated that the US supports the European aspirations of the Georgian people, however, the rhetoric from some Georgian officials recently, however, seems intended to distract Georgia’s citizens from that goal.
