Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze said the adoption of the foreign agents law meant a “victory” for Georgia’s “sovereignty and security”.

Accoring to the PM, the adoption of the law should not be considered a “victory for the Government itself or a defeat for its opponents”, but rather as a “triumph for Georgia's sovereignty and security”.

"We cannot consider the adoption of the law as a defeat for our international partners. They often try to present it like this. By adopting the law on transparency, only Georgia has won - its sovereignty and its security. Therefore, by adopting this law, only the ill-wishers of our country were defeated”, Kobakhidze said.

Kobakhidze further alleged “a lot of misinformation” against the law had been shared over the past two months.

Today, Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili signed the foreign agent law.
