The return of Georgia in Russia' sphere of interest will close the region's markets and access to Central Asian resources, and will deprive Europe and NATO of a partner, said Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, yesterday in Chatham House in London.


He promised to help Europe to diversify supplies of energy resources bypassing Russia - RIA Novosti.

He added that if the access to energy resources is cut, in case of cold winter Russia can shut the valve and literally make Europe shiver.

The Georgian leader said that discovered gas deposits in Georgia make it a good partner in energy sphere.

He also accused the world community of not explaining Russia the inadmissibility of its actions in South Ossetia in 2008.

"I'm worried today that a new invasion is still possible," he said.

In 2009 the independent fact-finding commission, working under the aegis f the EU, stated Saakashvili unleashed the war of August 2008.

The President of Georgia called the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia sham, and accused these 2 regions of "desertion".
