TBILISI, April 28 (Itar-Tass) - Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili who’s paying a visit to the United States told journalists on Saturday that he had called on Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili to refrain from remarks that could compromise Georgia.
"The prime minister made a supposition that the former Georgian government had trained North Caucasian terrorists for various operations,” Saakashvili said. Such statements, Saakashvili noted, are in the mainstream of “a propaganda campaign that Russia has been waging against Georgia in recent years.”
"I am sure that no one in the West is going to take his words seriously,” Saakashvili went on to say. He urged the incumbent Georgian government to advise the prime minister not to make such statements in future and give up flirting with such themes in order not to disarm Georgia,” the Georgian president said.
Ivanishvili said the other day that “the former authorities could have trained militants in the country’s territory.” He refrained from making his own conclusions on a special operation in the Lopota gorge that took place in August 2012 until an official investigation is over.
"The investigation is nearing completion and we are going to learn a lot of interesting facts, which will possibly be shocking. There is a suspicion that the former authorities collaborated with the militants but we should wait for the investigation to be over,” Ivanishvili said.
