Vashadze: Russia remains a threat for Georgia

2009-06-24 13:08

Russia is still a threat for Georgia, stated in Carnegie centre Grigol Vashadze, the Foreign Minister of Georgia.


He mentioned that Russia, though has opportunity to favor international security, spends effort attacking its "little neighbour".

In his view, Moscow desires its hegemony in the region, including energy one, and has neglected international law acts for many years.

At the same time, John Evans, the ex-general consul of the USA in St.Petersburg said that many Americans see Russia's behaviour in August 2008 in Caucasus in less dramatic view, and asked Vashadze to give a "less official" characteristic to Georgian-Russian relations.

Vashadze answered the picture he described was not much of extreme. In fact, he accused Russia of impeding direct negotiations between the Georgian authorities, Abkhazians and Ossetians.   

The Minister added he would prefer to speak of great Russian culture and Russian language, but the reality was just like he described.
