Saakashvili is going to face an uneasy spring2010-02-16 21:59
The president of Georgia keeps being criticized in his own country. The accusations of a wrong course and anti-Russian policy are thrown not only by the oppositionists but by the public authorities as well. What is Mikhail Saakashvili going to do in the current situation?
Since the beginning of last year, the Georgian opposition has been stating the necessity of mending relationship with Russia. Neither did the dissidents surrender a year later. For instance, last week, the Conservative Party of Georgia disseminated the statement saying that "serious problems that have accumulated in the Russian-Georgian relationship since the 90s killed the positive moments that connected the people of the two countries, that is, their cultural, scientific, economical and human relationship. Thus, it is necessary to leave the aggressive attitude aside and start a dialogue in order to solve the current problems between Georgia and RF basing upon the states' interests".
Some of the Georgian oppositional forces have already passed from words to deeds. As was reported by GeorgiaTimes, the United Russia party and Zurab Nogaideli's Georgian oppositional Movement for Fair Georgia have signed a cooperation agreement.
It is notable that leader of Alliance for Georgia Irakliy Alasania, a consummate diplomat, is openly speaking for the resumption of a dialogue with Moscow. He says that Georgia has got future only within the European family, being integrated with the western structures; however, at the same time, Tbilisi will have to settle the relationship with its closest neighbour, as the Georgian media report. "We have got large resources in Russia represented by over a million people living there", - Alasania underlined.
A lot of words have been said about the Georgian society's unchanged attitudes. According to the latest poll data, the majority of people in Georgia (65 percent) support the oppositionists' contacts with the Russian authorities.
However, the most curious thing is that the Georgian authorities are also stating their readiness to start negotiations with Russia and take personal part in them. For example, Deputy Chairman of Parliament Fridon Todua underlined the following: "Negotiations with Russia are to be started anyway, no matter whether today or tomorrow. Russia wants them as well; however, it is waiting for us to make the first step", - he stated, having added that negotiations will be definitely started.
