Alasania admitted: Georgia has no alternative to restoration of relations with Moscow2009-07-22 14:57
There is no alternative to normalization of relations between Russia and Georgia, and if there is a political will, the sides can "agree on much", believes Irakli Alasania, one of the opposition leaders.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Neither Russia nor Georgia will be able to think of a stability in the region unless we have a direct dialog. I'm sure this dialog will take place in the future... At the same time we must think about the restoration of the contacts at the level of people's diplomacy, as we have historically established relations with Russia," he said in the interview published in today's Kommersant.
"There is no other way out. We are neighbours, and in the future our peoples will say their word", he said.
At the same time Alasania believes that Georgia's desire for integration into European structures must not disturb Moscow - RIA Novosti.
He believes the process of integration helps Georgia to reach stability, and "the stable Georgia must be in the interests of Russia".
For Tbilisi the very process is "much more important than the fact of joining the Alliance", as it helps Georgia to perfect the structures of security and defense. When asked, will Georgia be granted NATO membership under the next president, he answered it "depends on the Alliance in the first line".
