NATO Secretary General Calls on Political Leaders of Georgia to Work Together on Reforms

Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of NATO, stated at briefing that he welcomes the Georgian government’s decision to withdraw the draft law on Agents of Foreign Influence.

Stoltenberg called on political leaders of Georgia to work together on necessary reforms.

According to the NATO Secretary General, Georgian people have clearly stated that they want integration in the Euro-Atlantic region and democratic prosperity.

“I welcome the decision of the Parliament of Georgia to drop or withdraw the draft law on foreign agents or influence, because it is incompatible with Euro-Atlantic values….So, I welcome the withdrawal of this initiative and the parliament not taking sides. I call on the political leaders of Georgia to work together on the necessary reforms and, of course, NATO is also working with Georgia to implement these reforms, to strengthen democratic institutions….NATO continues partnership in these aspirations,” Stoltenberg stated.
