Saakashvili promises not to break out a new war2009-08-03 12:38
Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, said he had no intention to start a new military campaign against South Ossetia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
In his interview to Reuters he mentioned that no-one in the world wants a new war in Europe with participation of Russia.
He added that the mere fact he is still the President of Georgia is "almost a miraculous story of survival". "I am still sitting in this office despite solemn pledges by (Prime Minister Vladimir) Putin to hang me by different parts of my body, to crush Georgia's statehood," Saakashvili said.
Saakashvili said former Soviet Georgia had no pretensions to take back South Ossetia and Abkhazia by force. At the same time, Russia warned on Saturday it would use "all available force" to defend against Georgian "provocation" after South Ossetia accused Georgia of firing mortars. Georgia denied the charge. President of Georgia found this statement worrisome.
