"The administration [Obama's administration] has held positive talks" with Tbilisi on this issue, the TV channel reports.
"Indeed, a senior Georgian official joked in an interview that his country, which just marked the first anniversary of a war with Russia, would accept every Guantanamo detainee if the deal came with the establishment of a U.S. military base in Georgia", the article says.
Six EU countries: Great Britain, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain agreed to accept detainees. Shota Utiashvili, the Interior Ministry of Georgia spokesman neither confirmed nor refuted the possibility of possible resettlement of Guantanamo detainees to Georgian prisons - Gazeta.ru.
David Darchiashvili, the one of the ruling party MPs cannot rule out this possibility. He says that if it doesn't violate international and Georgian legislation the assent can e given, as it has already been done in other U.S. partners.
At the same time, no decision has been made so far. "We just expressed readiness to consider the U.S. request. If the agreement is reached, we'll consider every candidate: a terrorist is one thing, and when it comes to a cheated person, that's another thing. Abkhazians can don't worry. As if we have nothing else to do than to send Taliban on them!" said Temur Iakobashvili, the Vice PM of Georgian government.
