Republican Leaders Visit U.S.

The United State is closely watching developments in Georgia and it is standing beside the Georgian people, leaders of opposition Republican Party said after talks with the U.S. administration officials in Washington on October 29.

?We are requesting everyone working on Georgian issues, not to tell Georgia No to NATO membership just because of irresponsible actions by the Georgia?s criminal authorities,? Tina Khidasheli of the Republican party told Rustavi 2 TV.

?They [the U.S. officials] have expressed a huge interest towards the incident in Zugdidi. They are well-informed about developments in Georgia and every one should know that the United States, as always, will stand beside the Georgian people, but the Georgian people should prove that it has a potential of democracy and we will show this to the entire world on November 2 [when opposition plans a protest rally in Tbilisi],? she said in separate comments aired by Imedi TV.

?The U.S. administration is deeply concerned about developments in Georgia. They are interested in changing of election system [in Georgia], including change of the current rule of election of majoritarian MPs,? Levan Berdzenishvili of the Republican Party said.

?The United States is interested in stability in Georgia; in resumption of development of democratic processes in Georgia,? Ivliane Khaindrava of the Republican Party said.

These politicians, along with the Republican Party leader, Davit Usupashvili, held meetings in the Washington-based think-tank, Hudson Institute as well as in the U.S. Department of State on October 29.
