Georgian media misunderstood Barroso

2010-11-19 13:37

10292.jpegHead of European Commission Jose-Manuel Barroso used the word "occupation" when speaking of the Russian military presence in Abkhazia and South Ossetia during the joint press conference with Mikheil Saakashvili in Brussels, Echo of Caucasus reports.


The same publication found out that the word "occupation" was a slip of the tongue. An official from Barroso's office in European Commission told Echo of Caucasus on the condition of anonymity that the uttered word "occupation" was just a slip of the tongue:

"I think, Georgian media attach too much significance to the fact. It was just an answer to a question during the press conference. This wasn't a previously written official statement. The journalist used the word "occupation" when asking her question. When the president heard the word "occupation" in the question he repeated it in his answer", - the source told.
