Opposition welcomes Barack Obama’s statement on Georgian issue2009-07-07 17:47
Georgian opposition considers it important that US President Barack Obama touched upon Georgia's territorial integrity issue at the meeting in Moscow, RIA Novosti reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
It will be remembered at the joint press conference in Kremlin with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday Barack Obama stated that Georgia's territorial integrity must be respected. According to him the USA disagree with Georgia's current borders but have no interest in renewed military conflict. He called to resolve these differences.
According to Viktor Dolidze, an Alliance for Georgia leader this statement was "natural to hear from Georgia's strategic partner". "It is very important that Obama raised the issue of Georgia's territorial integrity in line with global security concerns", - he said. Movement for United Georgia leader Eka Beselia remarked that the way the US President's statement would be fulfilled was the key question. "Georgian issue was positively voiced by the new president of the USA and it was unambiguously stated that Georgia's territorial integrity was inviolable. It's still important how this statement will be implemented", - Beselia stated.
Democratic Movement - United Georgia leader Nino Burdzhanadze believes it fundamentally important that Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty issues were brought up by the US President. "I would like to thank him and American people for their support", - Burdzhanadze said.
"The USA and the West repeatedly display their unconditional support for our territorial integrity and sovereignty and this is the basis allowing the efforts of the world community for the start of Georgia's deoccupation to be pursued", - Alliance for Georgia leader Irakli Alasania stated. Guram Chakhvadze, an opposition deputy of the Georgian parliament representing National Democratic Party remarked that "the US President's statement is a cold shower for skeptics both in Georgia and abroad".
