“Georgian Dream turned its back not only on its own people, but also on Europe and the whole West. This was their response after a week of negotiations in Tbilisi.”
“We postponed all street protests until the negotiation process was over, as we thought that common sense would be found within Georgian Dream and we would reach an agreement, but this did not happen,” member of the National Movement Zaal Udumashvili said at the briefing today.
He explained that the opposition parties also cancelled the protest planned for tomorrow, however, they are changing the strategy and will announce a new plan for activities tomorrow at 12:00 on Rustaveli Avenue.
“Georgian Dream turned its back not only on its own people, but also on Europe and the whole West. This was their response after a week of negotiations in Tbilisi. Accordingly, Georgian Dream has openly stated that it is closing its doors to our European partners and the West as a whole.”
To the journalist’s question, if the opposition is willing to continue the negotiations with the ruling party, Udumashvili answered that if Georgian Dream is ready for the dialogue, it may continue, unless they remain in the same position on every issue discussed before.
“We will wait for the reaction of our Western partners, who I am sure have left this country disappointed,” Udumashvili said.
