The opposition is expecting a dialogue with Moscow

2010-02-05 23:24

5266.jpegGeorgia is receiving guests from America and Europe: they are the US State Secretary James Steinberg and Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon. They have already met with the representatives of the authorities and the opposition. According to the media, the States promised to financially support the democracy development in the country, which is shaking with political squabbles. Meanwhile, Georgia has been often turning towards north recently. Some of these days, one of the largest oppositional organizations in Georgia, the Conservative party, spoke for "the beginning of a dialogue between Georgia and Russia considering the state interests of the two


countries". Leader of the oppositional Democratic Movement - United Georgia Nino Burjanadze has stated her readiness to come to Moscow. The Georgian intelligentsia with its critical attitude towards the Kremlin has also changed its position. The ruling majority makes no comments in this respect; however, it continues attacking the "traitors" via the Georgian media.

American guests are not quite satisfied with the democratic processes going on in Georgia and promise to share money with the little "democracy lighthouse" notwithstanding the crisis (this was the way George Bush characterized Georgia - I.P.). According to Rosbalt, as soon as the meeting with the US Assistant Secretary James Steinberg and Philip Gordon was over, leader of the parliamentary opposition, the Christian Democratic Movement, Georgi Targamadze stated that the USA are going to allocate money for the development of the democratic institutes in Georgia. Targamadze did not specify the size of the financial assistance. "The new thing we have learnt is that despite the reduction of expenses in various directions, including domestic expenses, the USA government is going to increase the assistance provided to Georgia to enforce the democratic institutes in the country. We hope that the next elections in Georgia will become the basis to consolidate the people", - Targamadze said.

In follow-up of the meeting, the representatives of the non-parliamentary opposition have stated that so far, there is no progress in Georgia in terms of the democracy development. The oppositionists did not specify whether more dollar inflow will be of any good in the current situation. Meanwhile, despite the efforts of the ruling National Movement, which representatives "brand" any Georgian politician who ventures to start a dialogue with the Russian capital, the ranks of the opposition are getting ready to pass from words to deeds and set up a real negotiating process with Russia.
