Tbilisi is afraid of the Eurasian Union
Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze said that the Russian authorities intend to restore the borders of the Soviet Union, and hoped on free and fair presidential elections in Russia.
"I hope that Russia will finally get a government that wants to live in peace with all neighbors and get rid of the schizophrenic, imperial hallucinations and realizes a simple truth that there's no tool more powerful than economic cooperation and equal partnership", according to "Georgia News", Vashadze said this in an interview to DELFI.
He also added that Tbilisi cautiously commends the initiative of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to create a Eurasian Union. "Georgia has no plans or intentions to participate in any of these organizations or associations under the auspices of Russia, which restores the Soviet Union in any manner", Vashadze said.
Note, recently the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia very sharply reacted to the statement of his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov that NATO had pushed Tbilisi to the war in August 2008.
Vashadze called Lavrov's statement "absurd" and doubted that the decision of the Bucharest summit of NATO has given confidence to the Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili, who has decided to take South Ossetia by force.
