During the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs hearing on “The State of American Diplomacy in 2024: Global Instability, Budget Challenges, and Great Power Competition,” the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said he anticipates that U.S. “will take actions” on Georgia’s recently passed Foreign Agents law, APA reports citing Civil.ge.

In response to a question from U.S. Rep. Bill Keating’s (D-MA) on the situation in Georgia and the possible U.S’s response, Secretary Blinken said: “We are very concerned about the foreign agents law that was passed. I think it’s right out of Moscow’s playbook unfortunately, and I think it clearly counters the desire of the overwhelming majority of Georgians to move toward the EU, and the EU integration.”

Secretary Blinken also said: “We are looking very hard at what we can do in response to that, and I anticipate we will take actions, the EU is looking at the impact on the accession process for Georgia, so I would anticipate that there will be things to come because of the impact this law may have.”
