Saakashvili won’t meet with Obama in Washington

2010-04-12 11:05

Past weekend Mikheil Saakashvili, the Georgian leader, arrived in the USA to participate in the international nuclear security summit to be held in Washington on April 12th-13th.


He was expected to hold a number of informal meetings with American politicians. Yesterday messages came Saakashvili would interrupt his visit to attend funeral of Lech Kaczynski, who he considered a personal friend, in Warsaw, and then return to Washington.

Many expectations were connected with Saakashvili's trip to the USA. Some supposed the Georgian leader could have met with Obama - one in one for the first time. Last week a phone talk on the initiative of Washington took place, and it was made clear the meeting wouldn't be held.

Georgi Khutsishvili, the head of Tbilisi International Center for Conflicts and Negotiations said the summit would be attended by leaders of 50 countries, and Obama's personal contacts with each would be impossible. The expert believes the summit will be held at the positive wave in the light of signing agreement of strategic arms limitation between Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama, and Georgian topic might not be even touched upon.
