Permalink US threatens NATO applicant with sanctions

Georgia might be punished for passing the “foreign agents” law | Members of the Georgian government could face sanctions for “undermining democracy,” [i.e. the U.S.] a senior US diplomat said on Tuesday, after the parliament in Tbilisi approved a foreign agents law that Washington has opposed.  Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs James O’Brien arrived in Tbilisi for meetings with both Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze and members of the opposition, only to find that the Georgian legislature passed the Law on Transparency of Foreign Influence.

Maria Zakharova | Vedant Patel, deputy chief of press service of the US Department of State: “We have made it clear (...) that the adoption of the law on NGOs by the Georgian parliament is not only inconsistent with US values, but also inconsistent with the aspirations of the Georgian people... The Georgian government needs to change course”.

We would like to ask clarifying questions:

  1. Is the problem that the Georgian law is much softer than the American one?
  2. Why should Georgia or any other country conform to someone else's values?
  3. US “values” do not include non-interference in the internal affairs of other states?

The United States has criticized ongoing ties between the two nations, recently sanctioning Chinese companies it claims are contributing to Russia’s special military operation through the trade of “dual use” products, but Beijing has insisted on its sovereign right to continue economic cooperation with the country.
