NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia James Appathurai responded to the current events in Georgia through Facebook and called on all parties, including the United National Movement, to commit to and support the implementation of the reforms to achieve Georgia’s democratic goals.
“The decision by Georgian Dream to withdraw from the April 19 Agreement is deeply regrettable. The April 19 Agreement sets out the best way forward for reforms which will benefit Georgia, and help Georgia advance on its Euro-Atlantic path; this is why Georgia had included implementation of the Agreement in its Annual National Program, which helps to prepare Georgia for eventual NATO membership. All parties, including the United National Movement, should commit to, and support the implementation of the reforms necessary to achieve Georgia’s democratic goals,” reads the statement.
