Georgian ex-ombudsman: Settlement of relations with Russia is one of necessary preconditions for country's development
Georgian Ex-Ombudsman Sozar Subari considers normalization of relations with Russia as one of the necessary preconditions for the development of the country. Subari stated about this at the meeting with representatives of public and political circles today.
Subari said the Georgian leadership is engaged in only useless criticism of Russia and does not take into account the international community's recommendations for the settlement of relations with Russia. He noted that Georgia had strained relations not only with Russia, but also with Azerbaijan and Armenia. Subari expressed his concerns in a letter published in the press.
"Overcoming the confrontation with Russia is one of the main preconditions to restore Georgia's integrity. Despite the unresolved issues, Georgia's policy towards Russia should be adequate and consistent with a political approach, such as U.S. and European countries enjoy in relations with Moscow. It is necessary to restrain emotions and take solutions with a cool head, to create an appropriate environment for finding solutions to problems. The policy of closed doors does not contribute to creation of such environment. Beginning of political and trade relations are of bilateral interests," the letter says.
