Poland doesn’t regard itself as Georgia’s ally

2008-12-05 16:28

Poland is no ally for Georgia, that started combat actions in South Ossetia, said Radoslaw Sikorski, Polish Foreign Minister, in the air of TVN24.


"We are not formal allies (of Georgia), but we are friendly countries and our relations are quite good. We cooperate in military sphere and even promote Georgian wine. But we do not want to do in a way Georgia does and do not want to end up in the same way", - RIA-Novosti quotes the Minister.

Talking of Mikhail Saakashvili, Sikorski noticed that he " assessed the risks badly, let himself be provoked and made a mistake".

The Minister touched upon the topic of NATO-Russian relations. According to Sikorski, "we returned to the dialog with Russia, but without zeal. Rather, to informal dialog. In this way, the situation in the Caucasus is not in the agenda ".

At the same time, Polish Minister estimated the conclusions of the NATO member countries Foreign Affairs Ministers meeting, held on December, 2nd in Brussels, positively. "Poland got everything it wanted to get. I mean, the approaching of these to countries (Georgia and Ukraine) to NATO ", - Sikorski said.

He added that MAP "is not the only way to join NATO" and drew Poland as an example. This country, like Hungary and Czech Republic, had no MAP, but joined the alliance at the moment it managed to meet NATO criteria. "We also agreed on expansion of NATO-Ukraine and NATO-Georgia commissions work. In the course of this program we will do the same as in MAP, or, maybe, even more ", - he noticed.
