White House drifting apart from official Tbilisi

2010-04-13 00:44

5794.jpegAt the invitation of his American colleague, President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili is going to take part in the nuclear safety summit that is going to be held in Washington on April 12-13. The official Tbilisi rejoiced some time ago, asserting that the White House was consistently implementing the line of the former President Georgia Bush who called Georgia "the lighthouse of democracy" and was lavish at supporting the young revolutionists. However, it became known today that the long-awaited meeting of Barack Obama and Mikhail Saakashvili in Washington is never going to take place. Does it mean that the forecasts of some of the Georgian experts talking about the White House's


growing indifference to the unpredictable Georgian leader start coming true?

For several months running, the Georgian authorities have been repeating the same words like a mantra: the USA are still supporting democracy in Georgia and the Russian-American "reload" does not concern Georgia at all. Indeed, the latest events confirmed to some extent that nothing threatens the friendship of the USA and the small Georgia. At least, Washington has more than once stated its loyalty to Georgia's territorial integrity and scolded Moscow for its position in respect of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Only the experts were still alert, underlining that things are not that smooth in the "Georgian-American kingdom"; they said that the new president would not support Mikhail Saakashvili as vehemently as his predecessor did, in the context of the "reload" between Moscow and Washington. The official authorities took such forecasts as an unfortunate joke. Anyway, the recent conversation between Mikhail Saakashvili and Barack Obama caused true euphoria.

Newspapers, TV channels and informational agencies were reporting all together that the US president rated the reforms in Georgia high. As was underlined by Press Speaker of the head of Georgia Manana Mandzhgaladze at the special press-conference, this was stated by Obama in the course of his telephone conversation with President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili. "The US president highly estimated the current reforms and expressed his satisfaction", - Mandzhgaladze said. At the same time, she pointed at the fact that in the course of the conversation, Obama said that Washington is going to take every effort to make Georgia a successful country. Mandzhgaladze also underlined that in the opinion of the US president, no one is able to isolate Georgia, so long as it is supported by both the international community and the United States. The expert community supporting the authorities saw important messages in the telephone talk of the two presidents.
