Children, don’t go to Africa for a walk!2010-10-04 14:37
If Georgia fails to get to Africa despite efforts by exalted Grigol Vashadze, then Africa should be invited to Georgia. Assisted by the office of the state minister for diaspora and Georgian community in the South African Republic, a large delegation of fifteen (!) farmers was lured to Sakartvelo to get an idea of the Caucasian state's investment climate and help attract investments from the "black continent". At least, this is a new Barba Rossa operation by the Georgian government.
The shell game named "please donate to Georgia's economy" left Europe to roam about other continents preceded by Mikheil Saakashvili's joyful speech on prompt infusion of considerable amount of investments from Donald Trump, an American billionaire into Georgia's construction sector and Nika Gilauri's request that agriculture minister should sell as much Georgian wine products in the territory of Turkey as possible. Thus, the authorities are expanding their "donation area" into Africa, i.e. the South African Republic, to be more precise, which is quite well off in terms of economy and does not complain about investments.
How come that Sakartvelo's government turned its gaze to this far-away country? It is easy to guess the intentions of "the lucky three": there are two explanations to all these actions so unlike an adequate world-view.
Firstly, yesterday Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic acknowledged independence of South Ossetia suggesting the start of diplomatic relations with Tskhinval. The SADR's sovereignty - only partially recognized - is determined by the UN International Court's advisory opinion stipulating that connections with Morocco and Mauritania can't hinder the republic's right to self-determination. Not long ago the Georgian government was laughing at Nauru and assured there would be no one else to blacken Sakartvelo's territorial integrity. Here they are now with a left hook to the jaw.
Grigol Vashadze speaking for the UN General Assembly stated that Georgia seeks extension of connections with African states, including economic contacts primarily through the exports of - guess what. Indeed, Vashadze's diplomatic art is too obvious. It is clear why Georgians have a cold sweat.
