Saakashvili: there is no threat of military aggression from the Russian side2009-04-03 11:19
Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, believes that after the meeting of Barack Obama and Dmitri Medvedev "the threat of military aggression for Georgian from the Russian side can be ruled out". The statement was made after opening the construction of the new power line in village Khelvachuri in Ajaria.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to the Georgian leader, at the meeting of Obama and Medvedev significant attention was paid to the issue of Georgia, and the data he received from Washington, confirms it.
"I am very pleased that one of the major issues on which Obama and Medvedev seriously disagreed yesterday during the meeting, and which is on the top of the list of priorities, is Georgia and the issue of occupation of Georgia. I am noting this with pleasure, because some in Russia had illusion that the United States would have traded Georgia off in exchange for Afghanistan and for relations with Iran. Nothing of that kind has happened," Saakashvili stated.
According to the President, the arrival of another U.S. military ship is a confirmation of the friendly attitude of the new U.S. administration and manifestation of its real and stable support. Besides, the negotiations with the USA on reformation of the armed forces of Georgia has begin.
"So we have very firm support from the U.S. administration. You know that the U.S. general visited Georgia two days ago and that we are moving to a new stage of strategic partnership, which means completely new level of [cooperation] and in fact [means] launch of creation of new Georgian army. We have no alternative ," he stated.
"In this situation, especially after the yesterday's meeting in London, I practically rule out any further Russian military adventures against Georgia. And on the other hand of course, Georgia will not be happy until the de-occupation of Georgia and until the last invader soldier does not leave the territory of Georgia."
The President also stated that Georgia needs further development and support of the friends to cope with the problems the country faces.
