Separatist to Decide Their Destiny with Georgia: Mikhail Saakashvili
Georgia, Tbilisi / corr. Trend N. Kirtskhalia/ The separatists of Georgia have no other way out than to solve their problems together with Georgia. The President of Georgia said to journalists in Strasbourg.
"They must solve their problems together with us and Sergey Lavrov, minister of foreign affairs of Russia has stated them it in so many words and during our meeting in Tbilisi he said that Russia is not going to recognize Abkhazia and South Osetia, the president said.
"This is a neatly stated position which differs from that of what the separatist leaders say to their people. They always state that Russia will recognize them," Saakashvili said.
'We will make every effort to solve the conflict peacefully and we want to dispel all fears of our people with regard to the policy of Tbilisi," the Georgian President said.
