Maya Panjikidze: Georgia will restore relations with Russia2012-10-08 13:33
According to the new Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze, the foreign policy of Georgia will not change; the country will continue to integrate into the European and Euro-Atlantic structures, but it also intends to restore relations with Russia. This was reported on Monday by the IA News-Georgia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"External vector of Georgia will not change: the European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Georgia - this is the choice of the Georgian people. I have worked in the diplomatic service for 16 years, and during this period it was the main focus of my work. Our main partner will be the United States, and these relationships must deepen. But we must not forget the neighbors, both near and far. We must restore the relations with Russia. Though we cannot solve the problems in these relationships for 1-2 days", Panjikidze said.
According to her, Georgia must find a common interest with Russia. "Settlement of the issue of Georgia's territorial integrity is impossible without a relationship with Russia ... And in the question of the occupied territories Georgia cannot go to compromise", Panjikidze added.
Recall, today Georgian billionaire and politician Bidzina Ivanishvili, who leads the coalition "Georgian Dream" which had won in the parliamentary election in the country, announced the new Cabinet. The new Foreign Minister has become Maya Panjikidze, a relative (wife's sister) of Irakli Alasania. Previously Panjikidze was Georgian ambassador to Germany; recently she was a spokesman of Ivanishvili.
