Everyone teasing Georgia2010-11-09 19:32
Recently Abkhaz PM Sergey Shamba received guests from Turkey. The delegation of businessmen headed by ERVA construction company president Erol Ozel expressed interest in bilateral cooperation. The government of the independent republic sets great hopes on Turkish investments into agriculture and construction business. In the meantime Georgian leaders in Tbilisi get drenched in cold sweat thinking about their largest trade partner switching over to the "enemies" and changing the vector of economic policy.
Turkey has long been hinting on possible development of humanitarian and commercial relations with Abkhazia. At any rate, head of Turkish Foreign Ministry's Department for South Caucasus Nurdan Bairaktar Golder and Turkey's ambassador to Georgia Levent Murat Burkhan consider the prospect as optimistic stating that Abkhazia is an important region for the Republic of Turkey.
It is clear that such revelations stir up Georgian leaders' fragile mentality. Naturally official Tbilisi expresses discontent. Though it is so weak that neighboring Ankara does not hear it well. Besides, the Turkish side suppresses protest resonance with a pill called "Turkey - for preservation of Georgia's territorial integrity" that keeps Mikheil Saakashvili's resentment inside his mighty chest.
By the way, it was Russia that upset Georgian government in connection with Abkhazia first. Rosneft national corporation has been on the republic's market for a long time pursuing ambitious plans of the Black Sea shelf development supposed to contain tons of energy resources. No wonder Georgia is desperately trying to retain the seceded state - "we need such a cow too". For the time being Sakartvelo is viewed only as a transit state, but even here it does not make much progress.
