Irakli Kobakhidze: Specific organizations are agents of foreign influence, therefore, we are dealing with one entity - what is written in the report of the State Department and what NGOs say are the same, it is impossible to separate them

Specific organizations are agents of foreign influence, therefore, we are dealing with one entity - what is written in the report of the State Department and what NGOs say are the same, it is impossible to separate them, the chairman of the Georgian Dream party Irakli Kobakhidze told journalists regarding the report of the US State Department.

As he noted, only "objective criticism" is acceptable for the ruling team, and "non-objective" criticism will be answered with "proper response".

"I didn't get to know the report, I saw some headlines, I will read it carefully, and where there is criticism based on objective arguments, we will take into account, there may be some that are not based on objective circumstances, and we will have an appropriate reaction to that. In fact, we have said many times that specific organizations are agents of foreign influence, therefore, we are dealing with one entity here, what is written in the report of the State Department and what NGOs say are practically the same, therefore it is impossible to separate the statements of these two directions. This is our general attitude. We will study this report carefully, and when I say we will study it carefully, this means that it has value, it is valuable for us, of course, objective criticism, if the criticism is non-objective, we will have an appropriate response. There is a specific example that shows that there is no objective criticism in specific cases, we will react to this," said Kobakhidze.
