Medvedev: Georgia got nothing by quitting CIS2010-12-13 14:54
President of Russia Dmitri Medvedev stated that having withdrawn from CIS, Georgia lost a number of opportunities, Rosbalt reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Those who quit CIS, I am speaking of Georgia notably, have hardly got anything of it, - Russian leader underlined. - They cannot communicate with all the countries at once; some of agreements are invalid for them. It means that even is such a negative way, CIS proves its ability to balance relationship between the states, helping us develop collectively".
Let us remind you that in August, it was a year since Georgia officially withdrew from Commonwealth of Independent States, an organization comprising 12 former republics of the Soviet Union.
Expert of Strategic Assessment and Analysis Institute Sergey Demidenko believes that having quit CIS, Georgia won't be able to get to the previous level of cooperation with former partners. "The CIS market is really closing for Georgia because of its withdrawal and the absence of connections with Moscow", - he remarked.
