However, the main condition for this, in his opinion, is Moscow's refusal from "territorial claims". Georgian President also noted that the level of corruption in his country was lower than in Russia according to the international rankings. He expressed regret that because of problems in Russian-Georgian relations, the Russian language in his country was becoming less popular.
At the same time, as reported by the RIA Novosti, Russian delegation to PACE believes that the speech of Georgian President at the Assembly on Monday night had propaganda nature. This was stated by the head of the delegation of the Russian Federation Alexei Pushkov.
Saakashvili spoke within an hour; he was also answered the questions of parliamentarians, including Russian.
Commenting on Saakashvili's speech, Pushkov noticed that it was dedicated to the success of Georgia, the issue of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as Georgia's proximity to the Euro-Atlantic alliance.
