Vashadze sees “the root of evil” in Moscow’s desire to control Tbilisi

2009-10-15 15:25

The reason of uncivilized relations of Georgia to Russia are the desire of the latter to establish total control over the former, but it will never happen, said Grigol Vashadze, the Foreign Minister of Georgia in his interview to BBC Russia - Interpressnews.


Vashadze believes the problem is: Russia doesn't consider Georgia as an independent country, able to choose allies among countries and organisation on own will and able to have many-vector foreign policy.

"There's a delusion in Moscow: Georgia is so important in strategic, military aspect and also as a transit opportunity of alternative energy supplies for Europe that Moscow must have significant, if not to say total control over the country. What we, quite understanbly, consider as the unacceptance of our statehood, because no sovereign country will agree to be the zone of privileged interests of anyone, not only the Russian Federation", Vashadze said.

Not so long ago he said Georgia wants to "forget about Russia".

He also mentioned that Tbilisi didn't intend to talk to Moscow until Russia left the territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
