Beka Liluashvili on Georgian Dream, Why does it prevent the creation of working formats? Who are they deceiving?

Josep Borrell meeting with Irakli Gharibashvili
Davit Usupashvili: The government stubbornly intends to form a strategic partnership with China, we are in a tragicomic situation, but our friends will not allow China and India to start a policy of recognizing the occupied territories of Georgia
Davit Usupashvili: Charles Michel's statement shows that everyone agreed that Georgia's place is in the European Union, the only one who opposes it is the delusional Georgian Dream
Davit Usupashvili: Dream says that it will not stop dreaming of becoming a one-party CEC and in this way it will lead the country to the elections. This will end them politically sooner

Davit Usupashvili: We are presenting the signatures of 50 MPs, we appeal to you to continue the procedures necessary for the creation of an investigative commission, and if this is not enough, then we will meet in the Constitutional Court
Davit Usupashvili: The Parliament has been functioning for more than 30 years and no one has ever done such a thing to arbitrarily remove an issue from the agenda
Davit Usupashvili: Our statement and the answer of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland coincided with each other - Poland is determined to be more actively involved in the process of European integration of Georgia
US Ambassador discusses visa restrictions and future of US-Georgia relations
