U.S. ‘Notes with Concern’ Firing of Alasania
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 Nov.'14 / 10:41

The U.S. Department of State noted with “concern” PM Irakli Garibashvili’s decision to dismiss Defense Minister Irakli Alasania and his deputy ministers, and the subsequent resignations of State Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and Foreign Minister.

“We have greatly appreciated the work of these ministers in service to their country and in partnership with the United States,” reads the statement of State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki.

“At a time of regional turmoil and domestic economic challenge, it is in Georgia’s interest to demonstrate stability, unity, commitment to due process and the rule of law, and public confidence in democratic institutions. We urge all parties to work towards these goals and to focus on securing Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic future.”

“We call upon the Georgian government to take steps to dispel perceptions that the judicial system is being used for political purposes, and to demonstrate its commitment to our shared democratic values,” reads the statement.
