The Baltic ministers claim that Tbilisi must uphold democratic values and the rule of law if it seeks EU and NATO memberships.
“The first reading of the law on foreign agents passed by the Georgian Parliament raises serious questions about the prospects of democracy in Georgia. We call on the Parliament of Georgia to responsibly assess the real interests of the country and refrain from decisions that may undermine aspirations of Georgia’s people to live in a democratic country which is advancing towards the EU and NATO. We call on the Government of Georgia to respect the right of people to a peaceful protest,” the joint statement by Lithuanian Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis, Estonian Minister Urmas Reinsalu and Latvian Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs reads.
