Saakashvili’s tongue takes him to Peru2011-08-02 21:22
Georgian leader Mikheil Saakashvili was a guest at the ceremony of inauguration of Ollanta Humala, the new president. Why did the head of Sakartvelo want this visit? No matter how pathetic his words pronounced at the time of signature of mutual agreements sounded, they all are empty. Two countries are so far away from each other that any trade between them is out of question. Mikheil Nikolozovich's only goal is to prevent recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in Latin America.
As we know, two out of four countries that recognized independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia are in Latin America playing a serious role in political life of the region. These countries are Venezuela and Nicaragua.
This is the reason why dozens or maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars of Georgian tax payers are spent on trips of the Georgian president around Latin America. But this is only the first part of the program. The second part consists of holidays and memorable dates of all corners of the region that employees of the Georgian ministry of foreign affairs learned by heart. Georgia is a republic that has deep knowledge of history and traditions of each Latin American country as if they are neighbors undivided by the ocean.
In Lima, the capital of Peru, Saakashvili has a highly-topical program. Financial constraints of his country limit his trips around the entire region, so the leader of Georgia uses any opportunity to deal with heads of the states he hasn't reached yet. This time Misha met Ricardo Martinelli, president of Panama, in Peru. There was no doubt that the first topic to be discussed would be non-recognition of the "breakaway regions".
Georgia plays an important role in Latin America now. At least, Mishiko was the only European guest attending the inauguration of the president of Peru. He was also invited to the military parade on the country's Independence Day.
Saakashvili himself is not a frequent guest to Latin America. Usually Georgian FM Grigol Vashadze goes there. He has already been to Cuba and Costa Rica.
