President Margvelashvili and Members of the European Parliament Discuss Abolition of the National Security Council in the Context of Current Challenges Facing Georgia

Murder of Archil Tatunashvili, alarming situation in the occupied territories of Georgia and ongoing creeping annexation have been discussed at the meeting of President Margvelashvili with members of the European Parliament's Subcommittee on Security and Defence (SEDE).
The meeting focused on current challenges facing Georgia and mechanisms to be implemented to increase the pressure on the Russian Federation and the occupational regime.
According to Mr. Davit Rakviashvili, Secretary of the National Security Council, abolition of the National Security Council and its negative consequences for the country’s national security system have been the major topics raised at the meeting.
As Michael Gahler pointed out following the meeting, members of the European Parliament are aware of Georgia’s annexation and ongoing unresolved conflicts.
“We will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the events that until now affect Georgia and illustrate very clearly what we expect from Russia,” Mr. Gahler said and welcomed the US and NATO support for Georgia in security issues.
“We monitor ongoing events as part of common security and defense policy and through the involvement of EUMM,” Mr. Gahler added and highlighted that high-ranking officials will pay a visit to Tbilisi on May 26 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Georgia’s independence.
The meeting has been attended by Mr. Giorgi Abashishvili, Head of the Administration of President Margvelashvili, Mr. Davit Rakviashvili, Secretary of the National Security Council and Mr. Tengiz Pkhaladze, Advisor to President Margvelashvili for Foreign Affairs.
