Obama administration is disappointed of Saakashvili – expert
Despite close ties of the USA and Georgia, Barack Obama administration wishes for toppling of Mikheil Saakashvili, stated Russian MP Sergey Markov.
According to the expert, "American authorities would be happy if the Georgian leader was shifted."
'In the view of many representatives of the present-day U.S. administration, at the place of the present-day inadequate, pathologically lying president someone saner must come," Markov said to OsInform.
The political scientist added that Washington executes the policy of strict control in regard to the present-day leaders of Georgia. "In particular, there's a very strict prohibition of any combat actions, in regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. If Georgian leaders resort to such actions, all the guilt will resort to Saakashvili," Markov said.
This negative attitude was caused with Saakashvili's making advances to Obama's rivals among Republicans. "Democrats are disappointed in Saakashvili, with the present-day administration he has overtly bad relations," Markov said.
Not so long ago Georgian authorities didn't allow Markov to September sitting of PACE Committee on Legal Issues, as he violated the law On Occupied Territories [those, who visited Abkhazia or South Ossetia, are not allowed in Georgia].
The same Commission rejected the arguments of official Tbilisi. PACE bureau condemned the Georgian authorities and said the incident would be considered in the Commitee on Rules and Procedure.
