The decision of the European Union in December will be political as well, but we can promise the public that we will fulfill all 12 points - Kobakhidze

The decision of the European Union in December will be political as well, but we can promise the public that we will fulfill all 12 points. Such a statement made the Chairman of Georgian Dream.

“The connection between the war and the candidate status was directly emphasized by the leaders of the EU. They directly said that Ukraine was granted candidate status because of the war. It was because of the war that it was offered to apply and because of the war it was given the status of a candidate, which is not my statement, it is the statement of the leaders of the EU.

Because of this, we can draw a very logical conclusion - if Georgia were or if tomorrow it finds itself in the same situation as Ukraine, in this case we are guaranteed the status of a candidate. We have very high hopes that we will be able to get candidate status in December without this.

If we get involved in the military conflict, EU candidate status will be guaranteed for us in December, this is simple logic. We do not talk on purpose about who is asking and who is not asking for our involvement in the war.

We want to remind you that it was the radical opposition and the related NGOs who demanded the imposition of sanctions on Russia, which would increase tenfold the risks of Georgia’s involvement in the war. Second, they directly demanded the sending of volunteers by planes to Ukraine, which means direct involvement of Georgia in the military conflict”, - said Irakli Kobakhidze.
