TBILISI, October 23 (Itar-Tass) - Georgian presidential candidate Nino Burdzhanadze believes that “presently Georgia has zero chances to enter NATO,” she said live on the Georgian Public Television here on Wednesday.
Burdzhanadze noted that “until Russian troops are deployed on the territory of Georgia, there cannot be serious debates over Georgia’s accession in the alliance.” “Contrary to many other Georgian politicians, who said that Georgia may enter NATO soon, I state straightforwardly that our country has no chances to enter the alliance both in 2014 and in 2015,” she said.
Burdzhanadze welcomed the steps of the new Georgian government “to restore trade and economic relations and cooperation in cultural and humanitarian spheres.” However, “to improve the relations with Russia it is not sufficient, a full-scale direct dialogue on all problematic issues is needed for this,” she said.
Former speaker of the Georgian parliament Nino Burdzhanadze is one of officially registered candidates for president of the country at Georgian presidential elections due on October 27. She is running from the public and political forum All People’s Assembly of Georgia.
