Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 1 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
No one is to build our country and nobody knows it better than us, so what we need?, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said at the meeting with leaders of the National Movement and the governors in the presidential palace in Tbilisi.
"We certainly need to consider the recommendations of international organizations, but we must take solution ourselves, we must learn to take responsibility," he said.
Saakashvili said the Georgian government today is so mobile, that can solve problems faster and better than that forwarding them to the international organizations.
Saakashvili cited the example of Moldova, which can not resolve the political crisis due to the advice of the international organizations.
Saakashvili noted that the country should have a strong president, since example of the Queen of England is not for Georgia. "We can not have a weak president at a time when 20 percent of our territory is occupied. But I support the idea of power distribution, but we will not allow such a Constitution, which can lead to paralysis of power," he said.
He called on the opposition to decide their fate together with the Georgian people, as it is worthy of respect. "Do not look for somewhere for support, we must turn to our people, who, standing in the chain, two years ago stopped Putin, who was ready to seize our country," Saakashvili said.
Georgia holds reforms aimed at decentralization of power, creation of modern communication and sharing of power between different branches of it.
Regarding the idea of "United Caucasus", he said not he put forward this idea, it came with time. "The time demands this idea, as it allows us to develop our country and the region, while we may head the reformation of the entire region," Saakashvili said.
