📍 Statement of the party “European Socialists”.
🔴 Chairman of the “European Socialists” party Fridon Injia and the political team of the party welcome the statement of the Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Gharibashvili, which, in the event of the unification of Georgia, will concern the implementation of 10 billion investment in Abkhazia and Samachablo in the first three years.
🔴 The Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Gharibashvili, while presenting the 2022 report, said that in case of reunification of Georgia, Abkhazia can become the second Monaco and Sukhumi – the second Monte Carlo, and it is possible for the central government of Georgia to invest 10 billion in Abkhazia and Samachablo in the first three years. The Prime Minister also noted that the government’s policy regarding the occupied territories will not be revised and the government will try to reunify the country in a peaceful way.
🔴 “The statement of the Prime Minister regarding the continuation of the peaceful policy in relation to the occupied regions, reconciliation and cooperation based on common interests, restoration of trust, improvement of the socio-economic condition of the population affected by the conflict and reconciliation of the consciously divided society,” the party’s statement said.
🔴 “Unfortunately, due to the political climate created by the radical opposition, the issue of territorial integrity, which is the foundation of the strength, well-being, and stable development of any state, is irrelevant and secondary today, which is unacceptable and it is necessary to change the political agenda,” the statement said.
🔴 “Therefore, the main task of the country’s government should be to settle the artificially created and self-absorbed Georgian-Abkhazian and Georgian-Ossetian conflicts. New approaches must be defined – it is necessary to switch to the mode of direct negotiations, with the participation of all interested (internal and external) parties,” the party’s statement reads.

📍 Fridon Injia’s speech at the plenary session of the Parliament of Georgia, where they listened to the Minister of Justice of Georgia Rati Bregadze in the “Minister’s Hour” format.
🔸In his speech, the chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia focused on the draft law initiated by the political group, which will affect the changes in the “Law on Citizenship”.
🔸 The bill envisages obtaining Georgian citizenship in a simplified manner for those persons who, due to the military conflict or other severe situation in the country, had to leave the country by force, including 2009, and therefore, in many cases, taking into account the inevitable situation, they were forced to obtain the citizenship of another country.
🔸 According to the deputy, fortunately, there are parliamentary committees and qualified lawyers in the highest legislative body of the country, who are able to resolve this issue positively.
🔸 “I was interested in your vision regarding the “Citizenship Law”. The changes initiated by us refer to persons who were forced to leave Georgia from 1992 to 2009. I was not satisfied with your answer on this matter. I understand that today you are facing a difficult challenge and this challenge is very important in this matter. But, nevertheless, I think there are committees and quite qualified lawyers in the Parliament of Georgia, through which this issue will be resolved positively and justice will be restored. The children and grandchildren of those people who left their homeland due to the twists of fate should not be left behind because of insufficient knowledge of the Georgian language,” said Fridon Injia.
🔸 The chairman of the political group considers it expedient to introduce the articles in the Criminal Code that were hastily canceled in 2004-2005.
🔸 “I was interested in your vision, what do you think, whether these articles should be revised or not?” … there are qualified lawyers in the parliament and I think this issue will also be on the agenda. I also had in mind the law on defamation and insult. Insulting the state symbols, the first persons of the state is not allowed and it is important to take this into account. I was also interested in your opinion regarding the principle of collective punishment, which is quite widespread in many of our exemplary countries, and in this regard it is possible to introduce the principle of collective punishment at least partially,” said Fridon Injia.
🔸 The chairman of the political group proposed to the Minister of Justice to transfer certain departments of the Ministry of Justice to the regions in order to relieve the capital. According to the MP, the Ministry of Agriculture can also make a similar decision.
🔸 In his speech, the chairman of the political group focused on the introduction of smart robots, which, in his opinion, will greatly contribute to the development of the agency.
🔸 “In many cities of Georgia there is a House of Justice and to some extent it has become a brand with its beautiful buildings, and this is thanks to you and your predecessors and it is very pleasant”, said Fridon Injia.
🔸 According to the chairman of the political group, the most difficult thing to listen to was the verdict announced by the Minister of Justice from the rostrum of the Parliament, which was related to the very difficult reality of the period of Saakashvili’s rule.
🔸 “Therefore, it occurred to me that we should remind the society about us and we should not forget all this, otherwise years, tens of years pass and it seems like nothing… but this was a very significant part of our life and it cannot be forgotten, healing for a Georgian man “.
🔸 “Therefore, I consider it expedient and I have a proposal that, under your auspices, you create a teaching center for the education of the population, where there will be programs that will touch on decisions made at different times, even for the purpose of studying laws. It can be very interesting, which will be based on these facts. With this, the work of the Ministry will be more appreciated,” said Fridon Injia.
🔸 At the end of the speech, the chairman of the political group positively evaluated the minister’s activities in light of the challenges that the Ministry of Justice is facing recently.
🔸 “You are, the first person, the Minister of Justice and you can do many things. Maybe someone doesn’t like your decisions, but if you act in the interests of Georgia, it will be beneficial for the country,” said Fridon Injia.

Until we talk to the Abkhazians directly, nothing will happen, only worrying statements will not do the job”! – Fridon injia

📍 “Until we talk to the Abkhazians directly, nothing will happen, only worrying statements will not do the job”! – Freedon is an engineer
🔴 “You, as a minister, cannot use the abilities, contacts, relations, knowledge, experience, tactics of many people that exist in relation to Abkhazia and Abkhazians. The case is zero. During these years, nothing was done to bring us closer to the Abkhazians. The center is in Abkhazia and everything is decided there, and we go around. Nothing will work until we talk to them directly. Only with resolutions, concerns, statements and funds that are implemented outside of Abkhazia, nothing will happen, the case will not move. Funding of education, health care and others, it is like a feather in the air and nothing changes”, – the chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia said about this from the parliamentary tribune, where the Minister of State for Reconciliation and Civil Equality Tea Akhvlediani, who is the country’s highest legislator, was heard. in the body
He presented a report in the “Minister’s Hour” format.
🔴 According to the MP, Abkhazians should be interested in all the successful projects that are implemented in the rest of Georgia.
🔴 “All ways can be used… what interests do they have, why don’t they come to you and prefer Russia. We have to analyze this. We must create such conditions that what is done for good in the rest of Georgia is acceptable to them as well. Are there some interests that are stopping them… it is necessary to talk. The first time, maybe it won’t work, the second time, the third time… Then, among them, people will be found who will be interested. They are our brothers, we cannot relocate them anywhere and they will be by our side. Therefore, if we do something, it should also be beneficial for them, even the port of Anaklia and others…”, said Fridon Injia.
🔴 He emphasized that it is necessary to talk with the de facto local authorities, and the Georgian side should use the constitution that was created during the time of President Zviad Gamsakhurdia.
The deputy also said that today, family ties, the Institute of Abkhaz elders and many other available opportunities are not used at all.
🔴 The chairman of “European Socialists” put forward an initiative in the Parliament of Georgia to create a relevant committee on issues of conflict settlement and integration.
🔴”There should be a committee in the parliament, not a commission, which will work on issues of regulation and integration. Japan, which, like us, is in conflict with Russia regarding territorial issues, has a minister in the cabinet who supervises various issues in the direction of Russia. It was a discovery for me”, said the MP.

🔴 According to him, the government of Georgia should clearly understand whose interests it is not to establish a dialogue between Georgians and Abkhazians.
🔴 “There are probably countries that are interested in not establishing a dialogue between us. In recent years, the US Embassy has not once made a statement regarding the dialogue with the parties, has not voiced a request to Russia, has not expressed its readiness… How long should we be so distant? You, as a minister, should take responsibility and, based on the interests of Georgia, prove to everyone who is preventing you what needs to be done. We lived together and we will live together, I am sure of that,” said Fridon Injia.
🔴 The chairman of the political group, before the hearing of Tea Akhvlediani, raised the issue of conducting the session in a closed format at the plenary session, in which the minister stated his position and noted that it would be acceptable for him to discuss and discuss in any format.
🔴 According to Fridon Injia, this was a test for the minister, how much he would show the initiative to support the issue of holding the session in a closed format.
🔴 “This was a test for the minister, whether he would show the initiative, that he was willing to discuss the issue in a closed format. But it turned out that it was all the same for the minister, because he had nothing special to talk about.
🔴 “I am making a statement to our brothers, the Abkhazians. My Abkhazians, my brothers, we are open. We have nothing to hide. As the minister said, there is nothing to hide, because nothing is being done, and I am telling this to our brothers, with whom we have a common state history, where our relatives are our dead, and this is worthy of attention and thought. – noted Fridon Injia.
🔴 According to the deputy, it would be much more acceptable and important for him, if instead of transporting the dead from Abkhazia to Tbilisi, the ministry would make it possible for them to visit the place for church holidays.
🔴 The chairman of the political group, in his speech, also drew attention to the bill of “European Socialists”, which provides for changes in the law on citizenship.
🔴 “The changes concerned those citizens whose children and grandchildren were forced to leave the country, whom the state could not protect, and at this time, according to our current legislation, we refuse them to receive Georgian citizenship, because they do not know the Georgian language,” said Fridon Injia.
🔴 The chairman of the political group expressed hope that common sense will prevail for the strength of the country and this issue will be resolved positively.

Are you ready to come with me to Sukhum ilet’s go directly to them and talk to our neighbors, our brothers on our common land and do you need the approval of the American Embassy for this

📍 “Are you ready to come with me to Sukhumi… let’s go directly to them and talk to our neighbors, our brothers on our common land… and do you need the approval of the American Embassy for this?”

🔹 These words were addressed by the chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia to the Minister of State for Reconciliation and Civil Equality Tea Akhvlediani, who presented a report to the highest legislative body of the country in the “Minister’s Hour” format.

🔹” I have a list here and I’m picking people and they’re ready and they’ve accepted this proposal with such enthusiasm that it’s really welcome. The only important thing is that they let you. You didn’t answer that.

Therefore, you stand tall as the minister of Skartvelo, as Gharibashvili says, that I will not do anything that would be against my country, you will do the same”. – said Fridon Injia.

🔹 Are there any countries that you do not agree with the Abkhazians? And if so, why don’t you reconcile them?

🔹 Why does the de facto government of Abkhazia not want to contact us?

🔹 Have you ever tried to negotiate directly – one on one?

🔹 Is there a possibility of reconciliation without dialogue?

🔹 Can you tell the defacto authorities of Abkhazia that you are talking to them as an autonomous republic, as was defined by the constitution in the first half of 1992. As to the later stage when they declared independence, that is another matter for discussion.

🔹 Was there an attempt to use this issue as one of the mechanisms for conflict settlement, to take an effective step?

The tourism potential of the country should increase with the development of Bakhmaro and Lebarde resorts – Fridon Injia

📍 “The tourism potential of the country should increase with the development of Bakhmaro and Lebarde resorts” – Fridon Injia

🔸 At the plenary session of the Parliament, the chairman of the parliamentary political group “European Socialists” Fridon Injia drew attention to the need to optimally use unexploited territories in Georgia and increase the country’s tourism potential.

🔸 In his speech, the deputy talked about the potential of Bakhmaro and Lebarde resorts.

🔸 “Something is being done in Bakhmaro, but it is not fully organized. It would be good if the Tbilisi City Hall takes the lead and even makes one object as it does many squares and parks in Tbilisi. I would also like to tell you about Lebarde resort, which is not used. A road should be built there, I don’t know if it will be included in the budget or not, but if proper attention is paid to the Lebarde resort, it will become equal to Bakhmaro and other tourist or resort areas,” said Fridon Injia.
