„This year marks the decisive stage we have to cover on our path toward Europe,"- Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili announced at the presentation of the Human Rights Action Plan and National Strategy of the Government of Georgia. According to him, on the way toward Europe it's very important Georgia to look up to the highest standard strategy and plan in human rights sphere.
„Very soon, after our high standard Action Plan is enacted, everyone will see that our government, our political team makes every effort and does everything in its power to ensure respect for human rights in Georgia in accordance with European standards once and for all and actually build democratic institutions which no political force will be able to undermine,"- stated Irakli Garibashvili.
Prime Minister on behalf of the Georgian Government thanked EU, EU Delegation to Georgia, and, first of all, Mister Thomas Hammarberg; Also, United Nations and all other international organizations contributing to Georgia's European integration, promotion of respect for human rights and strengthening of democratic processes.
" Georgia is in leading position in terms of elaborating Human Rights Action Plan," - this was stated by EU Special Adviser on Constitutional and Legal Issues and Human Rights Thomas Hammarberg.
According him, Human Rights Action Plan like this does not exist in even many of EU member countries and they probably can learn a lot from Georgia.
