Maka Bochorishvili met with the Chinese ambassador to Georgia
Maka Bochorishvili: There is no alternative to political dialogue with our partners
Maka Bochorishvili: We must realize that constant speculations about Georgia's European course and using the topic as a political tool will only hinder Georgia's progress towards the EU
Maka Bochorishvili: constant speculations regarding the European course, using this topic as a political tool will only hinder Georgia's progress towards the European Union
The so-called the legislative package prepared against LGBT propaganda was supported in the first reading
Maka Bochorishvili: Georgia's choice is to move towards the European Union, because Georgia is an integral part of Europe and European values
Maka Bochorishvili: Georgia really deserves a dignified attitude on the part of its partners and not to create obstacles on the way to Europe, but rather to help them
Peter Fischer: Unfortunately, there is no agreement on the "transparency of foreign influence" draft law of Georgia - the lack of progress on 9 points is a big concern for Germany
Maka Botchorishvili: I don't know what the MEPs have left to say beyond the resolution, although this is an additional tool to somehow help the protest mood here - I would ask a question: what does it serve and in whose interests are similar wishes of the MEPs?
Maka Bochorishvili: the completely argumentless opposition has nothing left, except to commit violence at the hands of weak Aleko Elisashvili and then applaud the violence
Maka Bochorishvili met with the representatives of the non-governmental organization "Future Leaders Hub"
Maka Bochorishvili: External influences are a problem for any democratic state
The Georgian delegation took part in the plenary session of the Conference of the European Affairs Committees of the National Parliaments of the European Union (COSAC)
Tina Bokuchava: "Dream" is lying, as if the opposition did not support some resolution, it was not a resolution - due to the government's anti-European moves, members of the European Parliament and Euronest delegation did not support Bochorishvili's initiative
According to Maka Bochorishvili, due to the refusal of the Ukrainian delegation and the Georgian opposition to the "Euronest" assembly, the resolution developed regarding the European perspective of Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova could not be initiated
Maka Bochorishvili: For the success of the enlargement policy, the negotiations on EU membership with the candidate countries should start immediately
The Georgian parliamentary delegation took part in the Inter-Parliamentary Conference (SECG) in the European Parliament
Maka Bochorishvili held a meeting with the Swedish ambassador
Robin Wagener - With the law on "transparency of foreign influence", there will be no EU membership - No chance for that
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
