Georgian government keeps text of the Georgian-American treaty secret2009-01-07 10:39
Georgian Conservative party expresses protest against the fact that Georgian government keeps the text of the strategic partnership treaty between the USA and Georgia, to be signed on January 9th , secret.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to the Conservative, in December 2008 their party demanded the Foreign Ministry to publish the treaty (Charter) for public discussion.
On December 31st the Ministry refused and explained that publishing this information is unreasonable.
The Conservative believe that Georgian government is trying to sign the strategic treaty behind people's back, and regard it as illogical. Moreover, in the result of similar secret agreements, signed previously, Georgia has already taken enslaving responsibilities to Azerbaijan ( the monastic complex David Garedzhi turned in the Azerbaijanian territory after one of such agreements), Armenia and other countries.
The Opposition cannot understand why does Georgian government hides the text of the document from its people. They add that the similar agreement, previously signed by Ukraine, was open to public.
The Conservative urge the government to publish the text of the Charter and make a decision on signing only after public discussions.
According to Georgian Foreign Ministry, the strategic partnership treaty with the USA will be signed on January, 9th , and Grigol Vashadze, Georgian Foreign Minister, has already arrived in Washington. The treaty implies partnership in spheres of security, economy, energy, culture and others, but the government promises to publish the specific points only after signing.
