Georgian President categorically rejects the rhetoric of Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili for 2008 war. As Saakashvili said Georgian journalists in Warsaw, Ivanishvili rhetoric echoes the Russian position and surprising.
"Premier makes statements that are no other than the retreat. Their statements that Georgia had behaved inappropriately during the August war, it gives trumps Russia, which can not be allowed because the Georgian government should not tell lies that Georgia started that war", he said.
Saakashvili said that is guilty for the fact that did not give up until the end of the European integration and resist joining NATO. "But I do not give up. I fought to the end and now we do not have to give up and give our country to others," he said.
Georgian President said his government has rebuffed the separatists and the occupier, and went to the end to achieve the ideal.
Saakashvili said that Georgia had already given up once, when in 1921, the flag of independent Georgia were replaced by Soviet.
"As the president I completely move away from the statement of the prime minister that Georgia started the war in 2008 and I'm not going to cooperate with the investigation on the matter. This matter of the future of our country and we all have to take a responsible approach to our choice, and honor," Saakashvili said.
On Thursday, the Chief Prosecutor of Georgia Archil Kbilashvili announced the start of the investigation of the legal aspects of the 2008 war.
