According to Saakashvili, none of his attempts was successful, Novosti-Gruzia (News-Georgia) informed.
«My attempt to contact Medvedev took place on August, 6th, in the evening. But I was said - the situation is not appropriate, it's not time for two Presidents to talk... On 8th and и 9th I every day tried to contact Medvedev or Putin, but reached no results», - Saakashvili said.
He said about the conclusions of one of his latest meetings with the ex-President of Russia, the present-day Russian PM, Vladimir Putin.
«The meeting was tough», - Saakashvili noticed. According to Georgian leader, Putin was talking about bilateral relationships development, promised to resume air connection and open market for Georgian vines, but when he touched upon conflict zones, he pointed out that it would be Russian response to the USA and Europe.
«It was a cynical statement», - Georgian leader said. According to Saakashvili, after the meeting David Bakradze, the ex-Foreign Minister of Georgia, who was present at the negotiations, said: «Putin threatens us with a war».
«I had the same impression», - Saakashvili concluded.
