Georgia, Tbilisi, July 24 / Trend , N.Kirtzkhalia/
During U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden's visit to Georgia the country achieved its two goals, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said at a meeting of the majority of Parliament in the presidential palace Avlabari.
"We filled our short-term and our long-term goal. The short-term goal was that all Vladimir Putin's (the Russian Prime Minister) plans to seize Georgia and overthrow the existing government might become known worldwide, and that the United States would clearly state that it would not permit it to happen," the President said.
In perspective of the long-term, Saakashvili considers it important to recognize 'a new dividing line between the democratic world and Russian authoritarianism and expansionism'. "The concept of a new Berlin line passing though the Georgian territories which are occupied by Russia is already the understanding worldwide. And Biden said it in Tbilisi and this really is the line between democracy and totalitarianism," he said.
Saakashvili said that those "fans" of Russia in Georgia overvalue them, because it is impossible to obtain a recognition of independence by an aggressor." "Some say that Russia has a problem with the authorities and when those authorities leave, they will return it all to Georgia. This is a fairy tale, and it should not be counted on," he said.
The Georgian President also thanked the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko for the fact that he ordered his country's citizens, "carry out Georgian law, and do not enter the territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied by Russia."
