"Is it a foreign policy objective of the Obama administration to help end Russia's occupation of Georgia in a peaceful manner and restore Georgia territorial integrity? Absolutely yes; that's the objective we have. We have other goals with Georgia as well: we have a goal of enhancing stability in Georgia and in the region; we have a goal of enhancing democracy and we have a goal of enhancing economic growth in Georgia and we are doing all those things simultaneously," McFaul said - Civil.ge.
Yet he admitted America's efforts in this direction gave no significant effect.
"Have we made progress on that central objective? My answer is ‘no'; we have not; that's the truth. So we have the goal, we have the strategy that we are pursuing and we'll pursue that when President Medvedev is here [this month]. And have we made real progress in restoring Georgia's sovereignty? My answer is ‘no'." he said.
He said Obama's administration is ready to any proposals on more effective implementation of purpose of reinforcing independency and democracy in Georgia. McFaul also expressed wish to listen to an alternative strategy, allowing to reach more success - if only it exists.
