Turkey and Georgia continue working on the visa system, which is called not less than an example for the whole Schengen zone with paphos. Currently the citizens of both countries can cross the frontier using electronic certificates. However, the joy caused of visiting Turkish resorts can be soon replaced with great sorrow. Official Ankara pursues the policy of its own interests with the utmost care and Sakartvelo suits perfectly to become a springboard for the establishment of the Republic of Turkey as the regional leader.
Such a fine gesture by Turkey suggests certain thoughts. The closed frontiers between Armenia and Azerbaijan as well as between Yerevan and Ankara which even do not have any check-points are a striking example of cold confrontation between Caucasus countries. The only transit point for the Armenian state to communicate with the rest of the world is Georgia and the Russian Federation which in spite of everything keep their frontiers open for each other.
It appears that at this stage the Turkish-Georgian agreement has quite a symbolic nature. For Georgia the assistance of a new friend such as Ankara, embodies the hope that it will be able to make its way to the EU using at least such a "back door". Tbilisi seems not to take into account the great doubts seizing the European Parliament each time the question of admitting Turkey is raised. The world of Islam is rebellious and extremely fragile, which was demonstrated by the total failure of the European multiculturalism policy. The parliamentarians keep advancing new claims, particularly, to recognize the genocide of Armenians and to solve the problems of Northern Cyprus. But things have not got forward an inch because the Turkish authorities do not intend to disown the crimes of the Ottoman Empire.
For Turkey itself the "humanitarian intervention" in Georgia is beneficial due to one simple reason. The geopolitical shake-up in August'2008 showed that Ankara, in spite of its NATO membership, does not want to dance to the American tune: it knows very well the purposes pursued both by the USA and by the Russian Federation in the region. And so far it prefers to support Moscow as America has never concealed its plans to redraw the map of the Caucasus. For further "democratization" it has to create another microscopic Kurd state while the territory for this satellite country will be taken, of course, from the Republic of Turkey. In addition, the USA are grazing so actively near Georgia because to control it means to directly weaken the positions of Turkey.
No wonder that during the armed conflict the authorities of Turkey prohibited the American navy to enter the water area of the Black Sea. The Bosporus and Dardanelles strait is a very good trump card letting the whole world community to talk to the Turkish Republic at least on equal terms. And the role of a mediator in the conflict around Nagorny Karabakh, if it is solved peacefully, will enable the leveling of Washington's presence in the Caucasus which is very convenient for Russia as well. It looks like Tbilisi should be concerned about Turks introducing a visa-free regime. There's no such thing as a free lunch, and it is doubtful that Mikhail Saakashvili who is a henchman of the American administration is not aware of the real purposes pursued by Ankara.
