2008-12-22 17:56

On Monday, in the State Chancellery, Mikhail Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, conducted a meeting with presenters of national airs of the News Programme "Moambe" on State Channel 1. These airs are broadcasted in the languages of ethnic minorities.


The President noticed that Georgia is not just a multinational, but also united and consolidated state, and what happened in August, illustrated consolidation of Georgian society.

"I am strongly against the use of term "events of August". This term was created by some Western mass media to conceal the true situation. It is widely known that we faced well prepared Russian aggression and intervention ", Saakashvili stated.

"I disagree with the term «national minorities», these people are Georgian citizens possessing equal rights, indispensable part of our country, its flesh and blood, and it is very important. The main thing to cope with the consequences of aggression is to preserve unity and consolidation of the whole society ", the President noticed.

He said that issued an order to raise salaries to school teachers, situated in the districts with dense population of ethnic minorities.

"We must take further steps forward to integrate representatives of various ethnic groups", Saakashvili announced. In his view, to achieve this goal, Georgian language should be more intensively taught in schools, especially in the districts of Samtskhe-Dzhavakheti and Kvemo Kartli, where ethnic groups reside.
