2008-12-11 10:56

The USA welcomes the appointment of Grigol Vashadze to the position of Georgian Foreign Affairs Minister, stated Matthew Brise, the US Secretary of State advisor.


According to Brise, Vashadze's appointment is good as he has a long story of good relations with Moscow - ITAR TASS.

He adds that they all want good relations between Georgia and Russia, and Vashadze can assist in reaching this goal.

Brise confirmes that the US position in assessment of the armed conflict in Georgia remains the same. According to the US State Secretary advisor, the world community works hard and intensive for territorial integrity support. Brise is sure that Russia hasn't already implemented the terms of the cease-fire agreement.

At the same time, the diplomat agrees that the decision to start combat actions in South Ossetia was made by the present-day Georgian authorities.

Mikhail Saakashvili is still appreciated by many in the USA - for democracy development, though much is still left to do, Brise says.

The diplomat explains that much should be done for civil society building, restoration of mass media freedom and more that just tolerant attitude of administration to the opposition. Moreover, he says that opposition should be cultivated. In his view, now Georgian society has energy, and craving for such things.
