John Bass: We are closely watching the situation with Ivanishvili
As the U.S. Ambassador to Georgia John Bass reported in an interview today, this diplomatic agency is closely monitoring those events that are happening now in Georgia which are linked to the emergence Bidzina Ivanishvili at the political stage. As reported by the GHN, this was how the ambassador commented meeting of American diplomats with the businessman which was held yesterday in Ivanishvili's residence. This meeting, of course, was attended by John Bass.
"Bidzina Ivanishvili is rather new figure in politics. At the meeting there were made pretty important statements about the charges with the businessman. We are closely watching everything, and if necessary, we will examine these issues with the Government of Georgia", the U.S. envoy said.
However, it is important that the population of Georgia has received information from Bidzina Ivanishvili, and not from the U.S. ambassador, said Bass.
He believes that the accessibility of information even for a simple man is very important, it's important for people to make their own conclusion about the events that have occurred over the past two weeks in Georgia, and how legitimate they are.
"It is also very important that all negotiations were conducted in the peace format, and we could hear everybody's voice", said the head of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Sakartvelo.
