US Senator Jim Risch responds to Georgian Dream's decision to annul the April 19 agreement.
 
"Georgian Dream’s decision to walk away from the April 19 agreement is an abdication of gov’t responsibility, and seems to indicate that the party only cares about its own future – not that of the entire country. The people of Georgia deserve better," - he writes.
 
Chair of the ruling Georgian Dream party Irakli Kobakhidze announced the EU-brokered April 19 deal as “annulled".
 
MP Kobakhidze claimed the deal “served its mission and exhausted itself”.
 
Kobakhidze also claimed that since the major opposition party did not sign the document, “One-sided loyalty to the April 19 agreement is insulting for our party, and our voters will not forgive us this.”
 
“We can see our international partners do not find it necessary to strictly demand from the radical opposition to sign and participate in implementing the document,” said MP Kobakhidze.
 
According to Kobakhidze, by “annulling” the agreement, the political processes in the country would be allowed to continue in accordance with the “constitutional order".
