Foreign Ministry of Russia: the Charter on partnership of the USA and Georgia is de jure not binding2009-01-13 12:40
The Charter on strategic partnership between the USA and Georgia is not legally binding and contains nothing new, stated a source in the Foreign Ministry of Russia to ITAR-TASS, commenting upon the document, signed on January 9th in Washington D.C.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"On a closer examination it turns out that the document, that, by the way, is not legally binding, contains nothing new, the interlocutor noticed. -"It is rather a resume of the whole set of propagandist clichés, used in the course of recent years in information part of relations between Tbilisi and Washington". "It includes "partnership for the benefit of two peoples", "common democratic values", "integration of Georgia into European Atlantic institutions, international security consolidation, energy infrastructure development", the source explained.
When the Charter was signed, the President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, stated that it has historic significance.
"Never before in Georgian-Russian relations the term "strategic partnership" has been used, and it is a very important step on consolidation of Georgian positions", he noticed.
"With this document signed, Georgia gets considerably closer to European Atlantic space. I'd like to remind that joining of Baltic countries to NATO was preceded by signing the similar document with the USA", Georgian leader underlined.
At the same time he mentioned that "this document cannot solve all the problems of Georgia, but if it were signed a few years or, at least of it, one year ago, many bad things might were avoided".
