Three Opposition Leaders Meet U.S. Diplomat
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 10 Jun.'09 / 18:58

Nino Burjanadze, leader of Democratic Movement-United Georgia; Irakli Alasania, leader of Alliance for Georgia and Levan Gachechiladze, an individual opposition political, met with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Philip H. Gordon on June 10.

Nino Burjanadze said after the meeting: “It was a very important meeting. He confirmed his and the new U.S. administration’s deep interest in Georgia and the support to the Georgian people and it is very important. The mistake, when a concrete leader is supported instead of the people and the state, should not be repeated. And we obviously saw this stance.” 

“We discussed current problems in Georgia. We also discussed that we are leaving in the police regime. We also discussed current state of affairs with human rights and freedom of media. We also spoke about Russian factor,” Levan Gachechiladze said.

“We had a very detailed conversation about internal political situation in Georgia, how we see the participation of the United States as of a strategic partner in defusing this crisis,” Irakli Alasania told journalists after the meeting “We also spoke about the situation in conflict zones, about the necessity of presence of international missions in Georgia.”

Alasania, who also briefly met separately with the U.S. diplomat before other two opposition figures joined, said that he discussed issues related with his planned visit to the Unite States.
