NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia, Javier Colomina told Georgia’s government-critical Formula TV that the Alliance is “concerned with level of implementation of the reforms we have been requesting” from Tbilisi.
Per Colomina, during his recent meetings with Georgian officials in Tbilisi in late April, he made clear that “as much as we consider Georgia a very valued partner…” these reform-related concerns exist among the Alliance and the Allies.
“I mentioned to my [Georgian] interlocutors that the rhythm of implementation of the reforms is not the one we want to see,” the NATO official said.
“Political polarization is not helping, the atmosphere there is in your internal politics does not help,” he added.
