The award was granted at yesterday's farewell party, devoted to the termination if the 17-year work of the OSCE mission in Georgia.
Saakashvili mentioned regretfully the "because of the one state, which blocked the Mission's work in Georgia, it must be closed".
'We are assessing this very negatively, and I want to say that we are still fighting for de-occupation of its territories and resumption of Georgia's jurisdiction within the internationally recognized borders. Our citizens are left on the other side of the new Berlin Wall. Last summer the two thirds of them were banished, but the several thousands of citizens, remaining there, are also the children of Georgia, and everyone must know the Georgian state belongs to them as well. We'll do everything to protect their rights", Saakashvili said.
The OSCE mission, which worked in Georgia since 1992, closes on June 30th.
