Georgia – France deeply regrets the adoption of the Law on Transparency of Foreign Influence (28 May 2024)


Like the European Union, France deeply regrets the Georgian parliament’s May 28th decision to adopt the Law on Transparency of Foreign Influence, despite its incompatibility with the values and principles underpinning the EU, which Georgia seeks to join.

Civil society and independent media play a vital role in democratic life. It is the Georgian authorities’ responsibility to preserve and strengthen an environment conducive to their work and safety.

Together with its European partners, France will continue to support democracy, the European way and Georgia’s sovereignty, to which the Georgian people have demonstrated their deep commitment.
