Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb.22 / Trend /
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili considers the statement of Parliament Speaker David Usupashvili as refusal to dialogue, Georgian President's spokesperson Manana Manjgaladze told reporters.
She said Saakashvili's open letter contains only requirement - protection of the Constitution and holding negotiations in the Parliament.
Earlier, Speaker Usupashvili said that it will be possible to hear president at the parliament in late March, when "more important issues" will be resolved and if the parties can agree on the constitutional amendments limiting the president's authority.
"Dialogue is a conversation between the parties. The President wants to talk and hear the views of parliament members. That is why, we do not understand how the dialogue will be, if the president is not given an opportunity to speak and if the parliament does not want to talk. Behind the words of the Speaker, unfortunately, one can see only one thing - refusal to dialogue," Manjgaladze said.
On behalf of Mikheil Saakashvili, Manjgaladze expressed the hope that the parliament will return to this issue and will give an opportunity to the President to speak in Parliament.
