At the same time, deputy secretary of the Security Council of Georgia Batu Kutelia told reporters that "the place of Georgia is in the Euro-Atlantic structures, not in the CIS".
As recalled by the VZGLIAD, previously President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said he supported the integrity of Georgia. Belarus President also called on the Georgian government to focus on relations with Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "We should not catch the defense ministers - I'm sorry for interfering in this - or other politicians, but to solve the pressing issues. And this is one of the main issues", he said.
Lukashenko said that Minsk and Moscow stood for the integrity of Georgia. "Without positions of Saakashvili, Ivanishvili, the leaders of South Ossetia and Abkhazia you cannot resolve this issue", Lukashenko stated.
According to the Belarusian President, "Russia is happy" as soon as Georgia agrees with Abkhazia. Lukashenko added that "this is not a Russian problem, since it does not need this conflict".
