Nino Burjanadze infringes friendship of Saakashvili and McCain2010-08-12 12:17

At yesterday's meeting with journalists in Prime Time press club, Burjanadze responded to the letter of McCain, published on August 8th in The Washington Post. In that one the senator speaks about existence of democracy and supremacy of law in Georgia, yet at the same time condemns the facts of dispersing peaceful rallies and violation of human rights in Russia.
"I wonder where McCain saw a dictate of law in Georgia, or, unlike the case with Russia, why doesn't he write about the disperse of peaceful demonstrations in Georgia, for example, about May 6th , when protesters near the Tbilisi police office had their skulls fractured," Burjanadze said and added she also would like to know if McCain could forgive Barack Obama the loss of 20 per cent of country's territories.
The ex-Speaker believes the American senator has no actual information about situation in Georgia, otherwise she has no idea what's happening.
"America is a symbol of democracy for me, and I hope that Mr.McCain will remain the friend of not Mikheil Saakashvili, but Georgia; with these questions I'll turn to him personally in a written form," she claimed.
