Saakashvili on ‘Cornerstones of Modern Georgia’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 Nov.'09 / 19:29

“Military-patriotic education” is among the elements of those two “key triangles and cornerstones” based on which “modern Georgia” should be built, President Saakashvili said on November 6.

Saakashvili was explaining his vision on the matter at a televised meeting with a group of students from the Tbilisi-based Ilia Chavchavadze University.

Drawing on a chart board, Saakashvili told the students: “We should understand what those two triangles are on which success is based in modern life.”

He listed “history of multiethnic Georgia”, as well as Georgian language and “military-patriotic education” as elements of the first triangle, which he drew on the chart board.

On military-patriotic education he said that Georgia planned to reestablish a school of cadets, where it will be able to launch military education starting from the age of 14.

“The second triangle, without which modern, competitive Georgian cannot exist – it is, of course, computer skills, mathematics and knowledge of foreign languages,” Saakashvili said.

“These two triangles – computers, mathematics, foreign languages and on the other hand, history, language and military-patriotic education with taking into account the necessity of integration of our national minorities - are those major cornerstones, those cornerstones on which modern Georgia stands and through which we will achieve success and defeat egoistic and particularistic mentality,” he said.
