“In Georgia, compromises must be made by all parties involved to achieve the democracy and freedoms they seek,” Congressman Adam Kinzinger responds to a meeting with Archil Talakvadze, the Chairperson of the Parliament of Georgia.
The member of Congress posted a statement on his Twitter page.
“On Thursday, I had a productive meeting with the Speaker of the Georgian Parliament, where we both reaffirmed our shared goals for the U.S.-Georgia relationship. After our meeting, I engaged in dialogue with various parties involved in Georgia’s political crisis. While progress was made, it became apparent to me that there would continue to be unresolved differences between the opposition and the ruling party. Democracy is not easy, and while protests are normal in a free country, they must remain peaceful. As co-chair of the House Georgia Caucasus, I remain steadfastly committed to the strong and enduring U.S.-Georgia relationship,” writes Adam Kinzinger.
