Saakashvili again urges opposition to dialog2009-04-10 14:19
Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, doesn't intend to step down before 2013 and again urges the Georgian opposition to dialog. It was the essence of his today's statement at the signing ceremony of the memorandum for constructing Paravani hydro power plant, held in the President's Chancellery .gt-en-newsitem-inside
"I think yesterday was a very important for our democracy; one part of our society has expressed its will as it should correspond to a country with high-level culture and a country, which is in the process of becoming European democracy," he said.
Saakashvili mentioned that everyone must realize that any political instability is connected with serious risks, including the one for Georgian economy, and means cutting flow of investments.
"I want to tell those, who were rallying yesterday; opinion of each citizen is important for me; I take to heart the hardship of each of them, as well as their expectations," the President stated. "Because of hardship and pessimism many of our citizens are angry and I want to tell you that I am also very angry, because of the economic and security problems that our country faces."
"It is not easy to overcome these problems; hard work and right decision are required for that purpose," he continued. "And most of all it requires unity of all citizens and of political forces on major issues and it requires dialogue and taking of joint responsibility before the country's future."
He named the issue that the government is ready to discuss with the opposition: "how to overcome global crisis; how to tackle unemployment; how to de-occupy our territories; how to make the political system more open and democratic and how to reform the judiciary system to make the country more just."
"Speaking with ultimatums is very easy; taking categorical stance and saying no to dialogue is very easy; working together is difficult, listening to each other and forgetting regrets is difficult, as well as it is difficult to even slightly change our positions... This government is ready to speak with each and every political force, weather it is moderate or radical," Saakashvili highlighted.
