Georgia – “Transparency of Foreign Influence” bill (April 18, 2024)


France, along with the European Union, is concerned by the Georgian parliament’s approval of an early draft of the “Transparency of Foreign Influence” bill on April 17. This initiative runs counter to the EU’s founding values. Accusations of interference against the EU are unacceptable.

France calls on the Georgian authorities to focus on the immediate implementation of all the measures that are necessary in order for Georgia to continue moving toward EU membership, which the Georgian people overwhelmingly support. France stands with Georgia in this challenging endeavor.
