The States betraying Yakobashvili2011-05-03 18:53
Speaking at the international platforms, Georgia has been stubbornly trying to present Russia as an aggressor in the August-2008 conflict. The American sovereign's money would be regularly received by the republic then. But since that time, Washington has grown a bit alienated from Mikhail Saakashvili and doubts that the latter will be able to illuminate the entire Caucasus with its "democracy lighthouse". A small return revenge came soon. Georgian Ambassador to the USA Temur Yakobashvili delivered a damnatory speech addressed at the Congress. It turns out that the West has got no proper idea of Moscow-Tbilisi confrontation.
Former Minister for Reintegration Temur Yakobashvili has got a perfect opportunity to voice his demands against Georgia's western partners. The current Georgian ambassador to the United States delivered a fiery speech at a conference dedicated to the twentieth anniversary of the Caucasian republic's independence. His emotionality in branding the western partners is understandable. For several years, Tbilisi has been working off Washington's money, abusing Moscow and trying to prevent the growing extent of Abkhazia and South Ossetia's actual independence.
Now it turns out that the European society is actively settling economic contacts with the partially recognized republics and does not remember quite well the reason for a serious fuss in August 2008. The Georgian diplomats' confused explanations of Georgia's uncomfortable situation in the region and of the evil-minded northern neighbor who has set sights on twenty percent of the territorial integrity do not look that convincing. As for the rest of the South Caucasus, Tbilisi thinks it has got even and friendly relationship with these states.
"If you put Russia away, and what has happened to it is a tragedy, I must say that we've achieved impressing results in solving problems with our neighbours. Russia is part of the big Caucasus, whether you like it or not and, naturally, it has got national interests there. We would like Russia to respect our national interests, our sovereignty and independence and the right of all the South-Caucasian states to choose their future without any interference from outside", - Foreign Minister of Georgia Grigol Vashadze was telling his American friends when delivering a speech at a conference called "The strategy of the USA in respect of the South Caucasus and the Caspian Sea".
