Gert Jan Koopman: Tbilisi has a very tense climate, I urge everyone to lower the temperature - I clearly stated that this law is very problematic

Tbilisi has a very tense climate. There is escalation and polarization. I urge everyone to lower the temperature. It is a very unhealthy situation, - the Director General of the European Commission, Gert Jan Koopman, said in a conversation with journalists in Tbilisi, when he answered the question regarding the draft law on "transparency of foreign influence".

According to him, the draft law creates problems on the path of Georgia's European integration, and before its final approval, it is necessary to discuss its content.

"I clearly stated that this law is very problematic on the path of accession. The bill has so far passed the second reading and there is still a third reading ahead, and it may also be subject to a presidential veto. I think the time we have ahead of us should be used to discuss the content of the law, for us the draft law is unacceptable as it is. Incompatible with EU values. Transparency as a value is good, we in Europe value transparency, I hope that this law will not be adopted in this form and it is still possible to change it", said the Director General of the European Commission.
