Isolation of Georgia is up to the USA2010-04-15 00:15
The official Tbilisi is celebrating Mikhail Saakashvili's invitation to the nuclear safety summit. The Georgian officials believe that the participation of the country leader in such an event in the context of the actual absence of the nuclear arsenal and nuclear power in the republic means a lot. For instance, Head of Foreign Ministry Grigol Vashadze is sure that the United States will not allow the isolation of the country as the major partner of Georgia.
The Georgian foreign policy administration thinks that despite its strong efforts, Russia "failed to isolate" Georgia from the rest of the world. "We were invited to the nuclear safety summit, first of all, because this is a political message, - Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze believes. And the message goes as follows: the USA and this administration will never allow the isolation of Georgia". The minister refers to the recent telephone conversation between the leaders of the two countries, Barack Obama and Mikhail Saakashvili, when the US president expressed its support of Tbilisi.
It is interesting that the mentioned telephone talk has already become a legend in Georgia. At first, the media of the republic reported Obama's support of the reforms carried out in Georgia. Some of the experts saw Obama's gesture as a certain signal to Russia meaning that America allegedly keeps cooperating with Georgia, while the "reload" of the Russian-American relationship does not at all go on at the expense of Tbilisi. However, some people still doubt it; they consider a five-minute telephone conversation to be inadequate price for sending 750 soldiers to Afghanistan. It has become known later on, however, that the telephone talk did not mean anything special and that the US president had no intention to meet with Mikhail Saakashvili in person.
Russian political experts have more than once stressed the fact that the common worlds of the White House about the support of Georgia's "territorial integrity" should not be taken seriously. "Ritual statements is one thing, while practical steps in another thing", - Director of International Institute of Political Expertise Eugeni Minchenko believes. In his turn, Head of the Russian-American Relationship Center of USA and Canada Institute of Russian Academy of Science Pavel Podlesny underlines that one should not expect any changes in the position of the White House in respect of Tbilisi.
