Georgian parliament frightening Europe2010-07-28 18:51
Georgia has got a special quick responder to foreign events: it is Paata Davitaya, Vice Speaker of the Georgian parliament. Right after Comandante Hugo Chavez made a statement that Venezuelan ships were ready to range the seas on their way to Sukhum, Davitaya expressed his viewpoint on the matter. He believes that Moscow is purposefully teasing Georgia by putting forth its "heavy artillery", Venezuela,which he believes to be a threat not only for Georgians but for the entire Europe.
"Chavez is just executing Russia's order... Georgia must deliver information on Venezuela's intention to send its ships to Sukhumi to the international community in order to get a relevant response", - Vice Speaker of Parliament and chairman of the oppositional Ourselves party Paata Davitaya stated.
It seems difficult to fetch any context out of his confused speech. What ships are we talking about? Is it warships or trading vessels? Whom will the international community be represented by to receive Georgia's complaints? Is it going to be European Union, in which pocket Georgia is constantly thrusting its hand?
Georgia should spare nerves if Hugo Chavez sent trading vessels in order to implement the economic agreement with Abkhazia. However, even warships could hardly shake Europe's peace, which the Georgian government has been so much concerned about. After all, the Black Sea basin security has long been established by Montreux Convention. According to the document, foreign warships belonging to non-coastal states may stay in the region for a limited period of 21 days and only with Russia and Turkey's permission.
In the opinion of Deputy Director of CIS Countries Institute Vladimir Zharikhin, Georgia has been too much carried away by self-admiration. He would suggest that Georgian government should stop being the hub of the universe:
- Georgia is not Israel and Venezuelan ships will hardly share the fate of the ships of peace that headed for Gaza Strip (Israeli Naval Forces attacked the Fleet of Peace carrying humanitarian supplies aboard - author's note). There are powers there to protect Venezuelan ships. Naturally, in Georgia's opinion, this is a threat not only to Europe but to the whole world, so long as the world center is Tbilisi. Still, Abkhazia and Venezuela should simply do what they want to without paying attention to anyone. European Union may express its indignation, to Hugo Chavez's content.
