2012-12-06 12:29

Georgia will never yield to Russia and give up the principles of territorial integrity and freedom of choice in foreign policy. This was stated by the Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze, the VZGLIAD reported.


According to Panjikidze, there are two things that Georgia will never give up. "This is the principle of sovereignty and territorial integrity, and freedom of choice what kind of union or alliance to join", she said. Georgian Foreign Minister noted that the "contacts with Russia are possible at the working level". However, she hasn't specified the dates and issues.

Meanwhile, a meeting of the NATO-Georgia Commission was held on December 5 as part of the Ministerial Council in Brussels. The meeting was attended by NATO Secretary General. Georgian side was represented by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Maya Panjikidze.

"So there seems to be a broad consensus in Georgia that Georgia will continue to pursue a future membership of our Alliance and in exchange, we have reiterated that the decision we took in Bucharest in 2008 that Georgia will become a member of NATO provided, of course, Georgia fulfills the necessary criteria, that that Bucharest decision still stands", the Democracy & Freedom Watch quoted NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
