The United States will "take action" against the foreign agents bill adopted last week by the Georgian parliament, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned.

Testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the State Department's 2025 budget request, the Secretary of State said that the U.S. is "very concerned" about the “foreign agents” bill.

"We are looking very hard at what we can do in response to that, and I anticipate we will take actions...I would anticipate that there'll be things to come because of the impact that this law may have," Blinken said.

The foreign agents bill requires organizations, including media outlets, which receive more than 20% of their funding from overseas to register with the state. It also requires them to publish annual financial reports.
