The Chairman of the Georgian Parliamentary Committee on European Integration, David Darchiashvili, does not see any danger for Georgia in the transfer of prisoners from the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay (Cuba) to Georgia. "In my opinion, there is nothing wrong in it," Darchiashvili told Trend .

However, Darchiashvili believes that at first it is necessary to determine whether this possibility complies with Georgian laws and international regulations. "If there are no obstacles in this respect, then such a pace of development is acceptable. I don't think it fundamentally counteracts Georgian interests, the main thing is to comply with international procedural standards," Darchiashvili said. .

The Georgian MP believes that U.S. involvement in the affairs of the South Caucasian region is very important. "The strategic partnership with the U.S is a guarantee of security in the region, as our region remains head to head with the irrational and revisionist force that is Russia, Darchiashvili said.
