Saakashvili showed the UN a "peace gesture"2011-09-26 17:41
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili in his favorite manner pretended to be the main Caucasian peacemaker. Speaking at the UN Mishiko, who launched the war in 2008, said that his country will no longer solve the conflicts by force. And even called his promise, which he gave almost a year ago, "legally binding". That's just confidence in the unpredictable Georgian leader now has neither international community nor the Abkhazians and Ossetians, who are waiting for the signing of the agreement with Tbilisi on non-use of force for three years.
the agreement with Tbilisi on non-use of force for three years.
"Even though the UN Charter gives us the right to do so, we finally gave up the military means to restore our territorial integrity, - said on the eve the Georgian president. - Commitment, I undertook in front of the European Parliament, is legally binding, and I sent a corresponding letter to the UN Secretary General and other international organizations". Saakashvili said that Tbilisi is "still waiting" the Russian government to respond on this "gesture of peace". He once again accused Moscow of preparing terrorist attacks in the Georgian capital.
Representatives of the Saakashvili's team liked their boss' speach. "The most important in such speeches is linking of the national issues with regional and global issues. In his speech, the president has achieved this aim" - said the Permanent Representative of Georgia to the UN Alexander Lomaia. Well, then let us ask you a question, Mr. diplomat. What kind of peace gesture the leader of Sakartvelo meant? Yes, last fall, at the European Parliament he said that he would never attack Abkhazia and South Ossetia and even expressed his willingness to discuss problems of the region with Moscow. But at the same time he had asked the international community on support, saying that Russia would never agree to meet if do not formally assign the Abkhazia and South Ossetia the status of "occupied territories".
To get rid of dealing with international issues by promises - this is a kind of know-how from Saakashvili. During a year official Tbilisi could not make any concrete proposals on a document on the non-use of force in the Caucasus and has failed its own concept of "Integration through Cooperation" with the Abkhazians and Ossetians. The Russian side,which is familiar with the vagaries of Georgia, has repeatedly offered Saakashvili to sign a unilateral declaration of peaceful intentions and to send them to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. But it's time to write jokes about the compliancy of Sakartvelo's diplomats.
