"Neither the authorities nor opposition can drive the country out of crisis separately, therefore joint efforts in this field are necessary," he said.
"The EU was ready to favor a new meeting of opposition leaders with the President, but the authorities has forgotten the word ‘negotiations" for weeks. We are interested what the EU representatives intend to do for holding such a meeting", said David Usupashvili.
