Saakashvili Hails UN General Assembly Resolution
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 8 Sep.'10 / 18:25

President Saakashvili said on September 8, that despite Russia’s opposition, Georgia widened support in UN as its sponsored resolution, reiterating rights of IDPs to return back to breakaway Abkhazia and South Ossetia, received more support than last year.

He said that Russia “waged diplomatic war” against the Georgian-sponsored resolution to such scales that “Putin made Medvedev to call twice to several countries’ leaders” to lobby against the resolution.

“There was blackmailing of various countries and there were attempts to bribe some countries – they [Russia] may even bribed some countries, I do not know that and I can’t claim that, but the result [of voting] is that Russia has lost support of several important states and Georgia has gained several new supporters. Actually it is struggle between good and evil. Russia is against of the resolution, which says that people should return to their houses, where they were born… Russia is on the side of evil. Just look through the list of those countries, which support Russia and everything will become clear. The good has won a little, but important victory… We will continue our struggle, it was a small diplomatic victory and the eventual victory will be when occupying force leaves our territory; but before that eventual victory, we face many small diplomatic battles,” Saakashvili said.
