Reforms are the best chance to ensure an economically prosperous and democratic future for the Georgian people, said US Senator Jeanne Shaheen in the interview to the Voice of America.
“I understand that the Georgian people, who overwhelmingly support EU membership, were disappointed that Ukraine and Moldova were granted EU candidate status, but not Georgia. Georgia has made great progress in implementing critical reforms to advance its Euro-Atlantic aspirations, but there remain some areas that require progress. I am sure that the government of Georgia can achieve progress in the implementation of these reforms by conducting an inclusive process with the opposition parties and civil society”, - said the Senator.
She pointed out the need to implement the EU’s recommendations and said that it will not be easy, but implementing the reforms is “the best chance to ensure an economically prosperous and democratic future for the Georgian people”.
