A Plan for Short-Term Progress on the Georgia Conflicts has been presented in Tbilisi. It was prepared by specialists of the Center for American Progress Cory Welt and Samuel Charap. The publication instantly revealed the limits of geniality that the Georgian political elite is ready to show to its "American friends". As soon as the foreign experts made up a more or less considered document taking into account not only Mikhail Saakashvili's insane fantasies but also the objective situation around Abkhazia and South Ossetia the Georgian establishment immediately suspected them of bias.
suspected them of bias.
Welt and Charap's program states the gradual change in the attitude towards Abkhazia and South Ossetia on the part of the world community which is more and more apt to recognize the independence of the two former Georgian autonomies. Admitting the fact that such scenario is so far unacceptable for the official Tbilisi, they've offered another scheme that could help normalize relationship between Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia without political recognition - a so-called "no-recognition involvement".
As was stated by political expert Gogi Khutsishvili, such variant provides neither the recognition of Sukhum and Tskhinval, nor their economic integration in Europe. It "means restoring trust between the peoples and searching for the ways to get closer to Georgia".
Also, the authors of the document stress the necessity of signing an agreement on humanitarian and safety issues by Tbilisi, Sukhum and Tskhinval, as well as of changing the currently dominating dynamics of the Russian-Georgian relationship and normalizing the visa regime between the two countries.
A "no-recognition involvement" provision did not raise any objections on the Georgian part, while the rest of proposals that implied giving up the fierce anti-Russian rhetoric by the Georgian officers and the pro-governmental media aroused suspicions of the authors' biased attitude among public officers.
"The document contains many positive initiatives; however, there are certain biased articles, - political expert Kakha Gogolashvili believes. - It can be seen well in the part of recommendations that they want more from Georgia than they want from Russia and such demands made by a neutral player arouse suspicions of bias".
