Not everyone in Georgia has Avlabar philosophy2009-12-15 15:29
The lockup Georgia and Russia reached in the aftermath of the five-day war in Caucasus has continued throughout this year. Moscow didn't start the war as documentarily proved by Tagliavini chaired EU commission though Tbilisi keeps calling Russia an aggressor and an occupant that can't be dealt with at the negotiation table.
Any political or cultural figure that ventures to contact Russia is immediately declared traitor of the Georgian nation. However not all politicians in Georgia share this position.
Irakli Alasania, an opposition leader, is considered a rather popular politician in Georgia that has all the chances to win free democratic elections if there can be any in conditions of total demagogy and manipulation that helped President Saakashvili preserve his seat for the second term.
Today the Caucasian region, neighboring states and the West want to see Georgia as a stable, predictable and democratic partner. This circumstance must be a guide to action for the country's political milieu, Irakli Alasania believes.
Georgia will be considered accomplished democracy provided transfer of power to new political forces is done in the form of free election. The Alliance for Georgia sticks to a democratic (the only strategically right) way of political changes characterized by determination to improve the election environment and win over the current authorities in elections", - Irakli Alasania stated in his interview with popular Ogonyok magazine (Moscow).
And what does Mr. Alasania think about ways to overcome mistrust between political elites in Georgia and Russia after last year's armed conflict in South Ossetia? Does he believe resumption of the negotiating process between Moscow and Tbilisi is possible?
"Our countries have a lot in common, -Irakli Alasania says. - In order to get rid of the burden of past mistakes we must first of all define priorities for our countries and people. Each country must strive for realization of its interests but not at the cost or in prejudice of interests of the other. One thing is clear - citizens of our countries want to build good-neighborly relations and politicians must be fully aware of this before taking any decisions".
