Salome Zourabishvili vetoed this law, thus blocking all space for discussion. Our offer to international partners was to use the veto procedure to reconcile the positions, however, Salome Zurabishvili rudely vetoed the law, thus blocking all space for a healthy discussion, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze said at the government meeting while speaking about the "law on transparency of foreign influence", APA reports citing Interpressnews.

As Irakli Kobakhidze noted, according to a sociological survey, the "law on transparency of foreign influence" is supported by more than 60% of the population.

"More than 80% of the population supports the transparency of non-governmental organizations, as for the law, more than 60% of the population supports the law, therefore, the common sense of the majority of the population must definitely prevail, this is my personal opinion. Also, the importance of all this is shown by the fact that the opponents avoid the discussion as much as possible. You remember that when there was a discussion in the parliament, a debate about the law, the opponents did everything to prevent a healthy discussion. Also, I personally suggested the diplomats to participate in the public discussion of this draft law, but unfortunately, there was no response," said Kobakhidze.
