Turkey’s idea on Caucasian Security Platform not well formulated: President of Georgia
Georgia, Tbilisi, March 23 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili considers Caucasian Security Platform suggested by Turkey as raw material.
"Caucasian Security Platform suggested by Ankara has not been well formulated yet but we always welcome multilateral mechanisms," Saakashvili said at a press-conference within Brussels forum.
"This idea is raw. Consultations are at the initial stage yet," the President said.
Saakashvili said that he does not think it is necessary to create such mechanisms which will exclude the European Union and other big players in the region. "I think there must not be any exclusive regional mechanisms. But I think that any addition to already existing organizations of the European Union which will be opened for all positive players in the region can be welcomed," Georgian President said.
Ankara proposed itself as a mediator in peace settlement in Caucasus in August 2008. Ankara suggested an idea of Caucasian Security Platform, the organization in which Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia might have entered.
