Saakashvili: crisis won’t let Russia be aggressive

2009-02-19 12:12

Russia won't be able to conduct aggressive policy in regard to its neighbours in conditions of the economic crisis, stated Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia at the meeting with businessmen in Barcelona - Kavkazskiy Uzel.


"Russia has an economic crisis," he said. "It has supported an economy that it does not know how to modernize. With the drop in oil prices, we see how its economy is collapsing." Therefore, "it cannot allow itself to become aggressive" with its neighbors, the President believes.

According to Saakashvili, joining the European Union was more important to Tbilisi than being part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization since entering Europe "is like coming home."

Previously the Press service of the President of Georgia informed that on February 17th he departed for Spain to participate in the international conference. The aim of the visit is to mobilize foreign investments. The Minister of Economic Development, Lasha Zhvania, is the other visitor from Georgia.
