Energy to help to overcome grain crisis?

2010-09-01 11:35

Mikheil Saakashvili, the leader of Georgia, claims that issue with wheat supplies is solved. He explained that Georgia's demand for grain must be satisfied as it was done in energy sphere.


"Increase of world's prices for grain must not lay a heavy burden on the population of Georgia", he said at yesterday's meeting with PM Nika Gilauri and Minister of Agriculture Bakur Kvezereli.

The "recipe" for solving the grain problem must be borrowed from energy sphere and implies "intensification own production and maximum diversification of sources of supplies". The Georgian leader assured that at the present moment the issue of alternative grain markets is practically solved.

Saakashvili meant he connected with representatives of Kazakhstan, Ukraine, the USA, where Georgia can get wheat. Ukrainian government is ready to share its harvest, though it was also poor this year. It concerns supplies of 150 000 tons of wheat. From the USA over 200 000 tons of seeds of high-yield wheat will be delivered - perhaps, to solve the problem once and for good.

The Georgian President saw the support and expressed confidence there would be no problems with import of wheat.

Yet Eduard Shevardnadze, Saakashvili's predecessor, warned of a possible famine.
