Irakli Gharibashvili: To impose sanctions on the country and people, this approach is wrong

If they impose sanctions on the country, or on the people - I want to emphasize this, this approach is already wrong, on the one hand, we confirm and say that we want to discuss, discuss, on the other hand, such threats, blackmail, if such statements are not productive and yielding results, - Chairman of "Georgian Dream" Irakli Gharibashvili said about this.

According to him, discussion and dialogue are necessary.

"Before I could say, the Prime Minister has also said many times, our colleagues, the chairman of the parliament, they all said that the team is ready for discussion. If procedurally there is no other solution in this situation, perhaps this is what our colleagues meant, if the veto is a solution and within the framework of the veto, such a terminology or a solution is possible, which will relieve this situation, if it will calm down all the involved parties, calm them down and make them accept what is acceptable, I think , this would be an ideal case.

As for our partners, of course, I will repeat again, discussion, dialogue is necessary, it must continue. What should be approved at all, why should it happen? If they impose sanctions on the country or the people - I want to emphasize this, this approach is already wrong, on the one hand, we confirm and say that we want to discuss, discuss, on the other hand, such threats, blackmail, if such statements are not productive and yielding results" , - said Gharibashvili.

When asked if the country could not join the European Union, the economy might suffer, Gharibashvili answered that this is why "dialogue is right".

"Don't paint too apocalyptic a picture, please! That's why I said that a discussion is needed, that's why the Prime Minister also said, I heard the same statements from all the leaders of the team, the Chairman of the Parliament said, the MPs also said that it is necessary to use all opportunities in this process", Gharibashvili said.

Estonian Ambassador to Georgia - If we want EU membership, we should all play by the rules - The Georgian Government on the one hand says that they are moving closer to the EU, but their actions do not prove that
