Saakashvili: Georgia needs good relations with neighbours2010-06-04 12:15
Georgia is interested in good relations with its neighbours, President Mikheil Saakashvili stated in his interview to Berliner Zeitung - RosBalt.gt-en-newsitem-inside
In particular with Iran, he explained. Saakashvili assessed negatively the sanctions against the people but not the political administration. But in case in concerns proliferation of nuclear weapons, Georgia has the same interests as the USA and the entire Western world.
In his interview Saakashvili attempted to disclaim the common opinion about the changed attitude of the White House to Georgia with Obama's coming to office.
The government of Georgia changes course towards Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In this way it tries to explain the population of "occupied territories" that Georgians are not what Russian authorities present them.
Saakashvili highlighted that Georgia is a multinational society, willing to overcome biases and fears. To people of Abkhazia they want to show "the image of free Georgia" on one side and present-day Russia- on the other side. In Saakashvili's opinion, the difference is like between East and West Germany in Berlin Wall times. Yet the Georgian leader highlighted he had nothing against Russians. "But we need Russian tourists, not tanks," he said.
