Shalva Papuashvili: Georgia is part of the chain that helps the European Union and NATO to effectively implement sanctions

The conclusion published by the European Commission on November 8 once again destroyed the grounds for speculation. Those speculations, which, unfortunately, emerge in Georgia, and then are spread as disinformation on various formats and platforms, the Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, Shalva Papuashvili, said.

As he noted, Georgia works effectively in the direction of sanctions enforcement.

"The European Commission noted in its conclusion that all efforts are aimed at ensuring that the territory of Georgia is not used to circumvent sanctions. There is also a report by the European Union, American and Great Britain sanctions representatives, which states that not a single fact proves that the territory of Georgia was used to circumvent the sanctions. It is a pity that in Georgia such speculations arise inside the country, although no one has a question mark anymore. On the contrary, everyone is grateful that Georgia not only does not allow this on its own territory, but on its part, it stops certain undetected shipments from other countries at the border of Georgia. About 2,000 such transactions were stopped at the border of Georgia because sanctioned goods or sanctioned companies were exposed. Georgia is a part of the chain that helps the European Union and NATO to effectively implement the sanctions," said Shalva Papuashvili.
