In Georgia, Sarkozy will face with a rally "against the occupation"
Georgian TV-channels call up the citizens to come to the Freedom Square in Tbilisi, where a speech of President Mikhail Saakashvili and the head of France Nicolas Sarkozy will take place.
According to VZGLIAD, special clips on the topic of the upcoming rally "against occupation" are being shown several times a day on multiple channels. "The whole world needs to hear the voice of Georgia which will again be in focus of world media on October 7" - said their creators.
Recall, the visit of Nicolas Sarkozy in Georgia will be held on October 7. This was told in the press service of French Embassy in Georgia.
According to the embassy, French president will deliver a speech to the people at Freedom Square in Tbilisi at 17:30 local time on October 7. "All concerned citizens of Georgia and French citizens residing in Georgia will gather at Freedom Square at 17.00" - noted in the statement.
They reminded that French head of state has twice visited Sakartvelo. These visits took place in August and September 2008, after the Russo-Georgian war.
Prior to that, deputy head of Georgian Foreign Ministry Tornike Gordadze said that French President Nicolas Sarkozy has personal interest in the visit to Georgia.
"French President's visit to the South Caucasus, during which he will visit Georgia, is very important. As you may recall, he was the mediator during the Russo-Georgian war. Three years later, Sarkozy himself is interested in a visit to Georgia" - noted the deputy minister.
In turn, the Georgian side expects that French president will support Georgia in the way to European integration, the Georgian diplomat added.
"We enjoy the support of Central Europe. But the position of Western European states is also very important. We expect Sarkozy's support in European integration" - said Gordadze.
Note also that the opposition "Georgian Academy" offered to hold a protest against the authorities of the country on the day of visit of French President Nicolas Sarkozy to Tbilisi.
"We must show the whole Europe that not everybody supports Georgian authorities" - said the representative of "GA" Temur Naneishvili.
According to him, October 7 at Freedom Square, the authorities will arrange an event, which will be a demonstration of the ruling "United National Movement". "But we have to show to whole Europe that we are seeking fair elections" - said Naneishvili.
