US State Department: Opposition leaders' Arrest in Georgia

Washington, DC (STL.News) The United States is deeply troubled by the arrest of opposition leader Nika Melia and other members of the opposition in Georgia.

Polarizing rhetoric, force and aggression are not the solution to Georgia’s political differences.  We call on all sides to avoid actions that could further escalate tensions and to engage in good faith negotiations to resolve the current political crisis.

The United States stands ready to support a democratic, secure, and prosperous Georgia.
