Saakashvili on Obama’s Georgia Remarks
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 Jul.'09 / 22:54

President Saakashvili said that President Obama’s remarks made at a joint news conference with his Russian counterpart in Moscow was a demonstration of “unconditional support” towards Georgia.

Below is the Georgian President’s July 6 televised statement recorded in Lithuania, where he now pays a visit to participate in the Baltic state’s millennium celebration events:

“In recent months we have been hearing from some [persons] – including from some of our compatriots, who are blindly repeating a lie thrown in by the Russian propaganda, that Georgia is in isolation, that Georgia has lost the western support because of this government.

But look, the only major issue, which was named as the major source of disagreement between the United States and Russia was Georgia’s territorial integrity and the United States has unconditionally expressed support [to Georgia] at this very first meeting – usually showing disagreements at first meetings are shunned away.

We all should understand one thing: the occupants will fail to maintain our territories; we will win in our struggle with the support of rest of the world if we stand together and if we ourselves do not undermine [the country].

What we have been saying is now being confirmed: we have maintained the support; we will have even more support; we will integrate our country into the western; democratic world; we will get stronger and we, together with our friends, will definitely de-occupy our territories and definitely expel occupant forces from our territories.

I am absolutely sure in that and I am also absolutely sure that the democratic world will continue supporting us in this, if we remain wise and if we remain united. “
