“We understand how difficult it is for Georgia to act against Russia, but please respect the sanctions,” EU High Representative Joseph Borrell said about Georgia.
Borrell said the meeting with Georgian politicians discussed sanctions enforcement measures and the prospect of a recent bid for EU membership.
“You can easily imagine what we were talking about, enforcement of sanctions, to avoid the economic consequences of sanctions, we talked about the prospect of the recent application for EU membership, this is a window of opportunity and needs to accelerate reforms, especially in the field of justice.
The EU is a political system based on the rule of law that depends on the full accountability of an independent judiciary with the full confidence of its citizens, and we demand that of any candidate.
Yes, I mean the sanctions against Russia because of the war in Ukraine. We have great respect for supporting the UN vote, we understand how difficult it is for you to act against Russia, but we also ask for sanctions so that the effectiveness of the sanctions is not lost, ”he said.
