Ex-leader of Moldova refused to meet with Saakashvili2010-11-23 12:10
The ex-president of Moldova, now leader of the Communist part of the republic, Vladimir Voronin, refused to hold a meeting with Mikheil Saakashvili, the leader of Georgia - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Mikheil Saakashvili requested a meeting with me on Thursday evening, but I refused," he noted and added it wasn't a demarche against all Georgia and its people.
According to Voronin, the voiced noble aims - democratization of the country, peaceful restoration of "territorial integrity" were discredited by the rule of Saakashvili himself.
"Regime of personal authority, built on repressions against opposition and free mass media was established in Georgia, - the Moldovan ex-president highlighted. - And the attempt of forcing Abkhazia and South Ossetia into submission created a very dangerous international precedent in issues of solving territorial conflicts."
Yet Voronin expressed confidence the Georgian leader will find "rewarding listeners and disciples" among leaders of the alliance, ruling Moldova now.
"Nevertheless, for most citizens of Moldova Saakashvili has been neither revolution nor democracy for a long time. It's war, vandalism, and authoritarian regime," he concluded.
