Tbilisi waiting for Moscow’s response2010-11-25 18:18
Despite Moscow's openly skeptic attitude toward Mikheil Saakashvili's public promises never to use force to bring Abkhazia and South Ossetia back to Georgia, official Tbilisi is still waiting for Russia to make a step forward, Novosti-Georgia reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"The mentioned statement of the Georgian president is a separately taken international obligation, of which fact heads of international organizations will be notified in the nearest days", goes the statement of the Georgian MFA.
Let us remind you that during European Parliament session on Tuesday, November 23, Mikheil Saakashvili stated that Georgia will never apply force to bring Abkhazia and South Ossetia back. Besides, he underlined once again that he is ready for a comprehensive dialogue with the Russian government. Saakashvili called upon Russia to "make a choice in favour of the future".
Russian Foreign Ministry answered that any promises of the Georgian president may be considered only when they are substantiated by legally executed documents. Also, Russian side repeatedly stated that negotiations with the Georgian government are impossible.
Ignoring Russian MFA's skeptical attitude, the Georgian side hopes that "after the mentioned appeal of the Georgian president Moscow's position will change and the groundless rhetoric about the danger of using force will be replaced by the policy of fulfilling one's obligations and making efficient steps".
"We hope the hand stretched by Georgia won't be disregarded and a dialogue on fundamental issues will become possible", goes the statement of the Georgian MFA.
"Georgian MFA will closely watch Russia's reaction and will wait for some steps both at the next round of Geneva negotiations and during the OSCE summit in Astana, as well as in other formats", - the statement of the ministry goes.
