Saakashvili: ‘I Assume Full Responsibility’ for what has Happened
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 10 Sep.'08 / 18:50

President Saakashvili on September 10 again accused Russia of starting the war.

Speaking at a meeting with the local administration in the town of Gori on September 10, Saakashvili also said he was assuming “full personal responsibility” for everything that led the country to the current situation.

“I want to state with full responsibility: I am personally responsible and I assume full personal responsibility for each and every event that led us to [the current situation] and which preceded the Russian aggression against Georgia. I also assume full personal responsibility for rebuilding [Georgia] and establishing peace in Georgia,” Saakashvili said.

Saakashvili reiterated that he had given French President Nicolas Sarkozy “incontrovertible evidence” proving that Russia had made the first military move in the war.

“Some people in Europe were proposing – hoping to find something that could prove Georgia’s guilt – the establishment of an [international] investigative commission; it was me who said first: let’s set up an investigative commission with the involvement of serious international people… But as soon as we starting to talk about it loudly, some people got upset and now they are against such an investigation,” he said.

He also called on Parliament to study “in detail all the aspects of the Russian aggression, including what led us to this point and what should happen next in order to prevent a reoccurrence of this kind of situation.”
