Mishiko always blames the Kremlin2011-08-01 20:44
There is no state that is more interested in stability in the Caucasus than Russia. About ten top-level meetings have been held with the Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev's participation in order to solve the conflict in Nagorny Karabakh. It is not his fault that they failed. And now it becomes clear that Azerbaijan, with Turkey's active support and Georgia's silent connivance, is ready to solve the chronic conflict using force.
No one needs another war in the Caucasus, so head of the European Integration Research Center Vasil Chkoidze invoked an old method in order to somehow justify Tbilisi's feeble and wrongful attitude. In his opinion, it is Moscow's destructive position that is to be blamed for everything.
In the context of the upcoming American default that may deprive the Georgian president and his associates of a many-year manger, the dependence of the regime on two neighbouring states, Turkey and Azerbaijan, becomes more and more evident. Ankara has long been Tbilisi's major foreign trade partner, while Baku holds control over the access to hydrocarbon material. Thus, Mishiko, whose autocratic habits are now often criticized not only by Brussels but by Washington as well, had nothing else to do than finally sell the Georgian national interests to the Turks and Azerbaijani.
Despite the fact that solidarity with Armenian brothers in belief typical of the Orthodox Georgians is clouded by many unsettled disputes, it was the Georgian government's evident responsibility to take up a neutral, if not favourable, attitude in Yerevan's conflict with Baku and Ankara. It would allow maintain the delicate geopolitical balance in the Caucasus which is essential for the successful development of Sakartvelo's national economy. Instead, the regime has taken up an openly anti-Armenian attitude that played into the hands of the hawks among the close associates of Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev and become one of the reasons of the failure of a summit in Kazan.
