Diplomats join the battle hoping for revenge2008-12-03 09:54
The opposition's criticism against the Georgian leaders is getting tougher each day. The authority advocates whose number is rapidly decreasing call their errors juvenile follies. Indeed many Georgian politicians are hardly thirty.
So what? Is it too early to learn twists and turns of diplomacy? And at the same time live and govern by this principle "you are not my friend any more"? This is the only thing the young reformers do best. Last week wasn't an easy period for the country leaders. At first at the session of the interim parliamentary commission for investigation of the August events Georgia's ex ambassador to Russia Erosy Kitsmarishvili gave voice to numerous disclosures. And the final accord of its activity on November 28 were revelations of the president himself admitting yeah, we started that war but what else were we supposed to do...?
What will all these accusations and confessions without repentance lead to? For now the only thing is clear: not so many lessons have been learned.
The day after the termination of the said commission's activity the country decided to break diplomatic relations with Nicaragua. It is not a "friend" to Georgia due to the same reason as Russia. Nicaragua is the second state that recognized independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Tbilisi does not deny the principle applied here: "The friend of my enemy is my enemy". "The decision on the break of diplomatic relations was taken after Nicaragua's recognition of Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's independence. According to the Georgian government's resolution the validity of the bill signed on September 19 1994 "On establishment of diplomatic relations between Georgia and Nicaragua" has been terminated." - the Georgian Foreign Office states.
The authority explains they were postponing the official break of diplomatic relations with Managua in order to "observe internal procedures".
Nicaragua's president Daniel Ortega declared recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia a few days after his Russian colleague Dmitry Medvedev. It took Nicaragua three months to finalize all the required documents. No sooner had they put the full stop when the papers on the break of diplomatic relations with Georgia need to be prepared.
Did Tbilisi hope that Managua would cancel its decision as the Georgian authorities want Russia to? At least there were no protest notes from the Caucasian capital to this South American republic. Besides the fact of recognition on the part of Russia and Nicaragua is no more than a pretext to denounce Russian diplomacy.
