David Bakradze said : “If we want to talk about provocations, we experience provocations every day from Russia. As for the United States, the importance of military cooperation between Georgia and US defense agencies is very high. The relationship is in a better state than ever before. As for military bases, as I know, no discussion of this topic is taking place. The topic of military bases is not on the agenda. Consequently, I do not think there should be a big discussion. But military cooperation in any form with the United States is a priority for our country. This country is our main partner and supporter. Deepening cooperation in any form that will help the security of our country is vital for us," said Chugoshvili. The EU Ambassador to Georgia, Carl Hartzell has also expressed his attitude regarding the topic and the comments made by the president. Of course, the security issue should be considered in a broader context. As for military bases, this is an issue that is a part of a broader context. The EU always support Georgia's independence and territorial integrity as well as the right of Georgia to have its own vision on security issues," said Carl Hartzell. In the opposition, the statement caused a lot of discontents. The leader of 'European Georgia' David Bakradze stated that Salome Zurabishvili's words directly contradict Georgia-NATO's future obligations. Davit Bakradze demanded an official explanation from the Government of Georgia on whether or not Salome Zurabishvili's statement is representative of the position of the Georgian government. "The deployment of American and general military forces in Georgia is not only our future security guarantee but also the commitment of Georgia when it becomes a member of NATO. Therefore, Salome Zurabishvili's words directly contradict the Georgia-NATO's future obligations. This is exactly the statement which directly benefits Russia and states that Georgia should not be a part of the Western security system,” External link

David Bakradze said ( about Giorgi Gakharia ) : “We fully agree with the demand of a part of the society that considers it unacceptable to nominate Gakharia as Prime Minister, but as a result of the demand of the same part of society, there has been a real prospect of changing the electoral system and moving to proportional elections. That is why we, as a political party and opposition, are obliged not to back down from this perspective and give no excuse to say that the opposition does not support or lack votes to move on this initiative,” External link

David Bakradze said : “If we want to talk about provocations, we experience provocations every day from Russia. As for the United States, the importance of military cooperation between Georgia and US defense agencies is very high. The relationship is in a better state than ever before. As for military bases, as I know, no discussion of this topic is taking place. The topic of military bases is not on the agenda. Consequently, I do not think there should be a big discussion. But military cooperation in any form with the United States is a priority for our country. This country is our main partner and supporter. Deepening cooperation in any form that will help the security of our country is vital for us," said Chugoshvili. The EU Ambassador to Georgia, Carl Hartzell has also expressed his attitude regarding the topic and the comments made by the president. Of course, the security issue should be considered in a broader context. As for military bases, this is an issue that is a part of a broader context. The EU always support Georgia's independence and territorial integrity as well as the right of Georgia to have its own vision on security issues," said Carl Hartzell. In the opposition, the statement caused a lot of discontents. The leader of 'European Georgia' David Bakradze stated that Salome Zurabishvili's words directly contradict Georgia-NATO's future obligations. Davit Bakradze demanded an official explanation from the Government of Georgia on whether or not Salome Zurabishvili's statement is representative of the position of the Georgian government. "The deployment of American and general military forces in Georgia is not only our future security guarantee but also the commitment of Georgia when it becomes a member of NATO. Therefore, Salome Zurabishvili's words directly contradict the Georgia-NATO's future obligations. This is exactly the statement which directly benefits Russia and states that Georgia should not be a part of the Western security system,” External link
