2009-07-21 10:40

President Mikheil Saakashvili stated The Wall Street Journal, which on Monday published his interview with the words that Georgia's hopes for joining NATO are "almost dead", apologized to him - RIA Novosti.


In that way the President answered the statement of Georgi Targamadze, the Christian Democrats leader [parliamentary minority] who criticized him harshly for those words.

According to the previous messages of Georgia Times, on July 19th The Wall Street Journal published the interview with the President of Georgia.

"Before the August war, Mr. Saakashvili spoke confidently of his country's accession to NATO and the European Union, and its imminent reunification with the two breakaway regions -- South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Now, the president says achieving all three goals seems unlikely any time soon," The Wall Street Journal said.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Giga Bokeria believes that the interview of the President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, published in The Wall Street Journal is "a mistake of publishers".

"I want to very clearly state that a comment that has caused such enthusiasm among some members of the media is untrue. In fact, the President said that if Russia will block Georgia's joining to NATO, it would be a tragedy. Russia is really not able to do it, as evidenced by the position of President Obama," Bokeria said.
