The citizens of Georgia are at a low level, they do not have the opportunity to get a US visa, and they are equal to the countries that are not American partner countries, this is a fact, - said Davit Matikashvili, a member of "Georgian Dream".

 

According to him, Georgia does not welcome double standards, but open and healthy relations.

 

"Statistics show that the citizens of Georgia are at a low level, they do not have the opportunity to get a visa to the United States of America, and they are equal to those countries that are not American partner countries. This is a fact that no one can do anything about. When they talk about sanctions, no one has received such a sanction and there was no announcement. There is room for manipulation of public opinion by our opponents. Strategic partnership does not involve arm-twisting and coercive politics. We welcome partnerships based on equality. What is good for Europe cannot be bad for Georgia. We welcome not double standards, but open and healthy relationships. If transparency is good in America and Europe, it cannot be bad in Georgia", said Davit Matikashvili.

 

For reference, according to the 2023 data of the US State Department, the visa refusal rate for Georgian citizens is 49.23 percent. In the case of Belarus, this indicator is 32.80 percent, and in the case of Russia - 39.49 percent.
