TBILISI, DFWatch–Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili says there is too little attention being paid to Georgia as a victim of Russian aggression.
He told the television channel Rustavi 2 upon returning from the recent United Nations general assembly that when U.S. President Barack Obama spoke about Russia’s policy toward its neighbors, the only example he mentioned was Ukraine.
“But Georgia was the first state to suffer Russian aggression. Georgia is a country, the territories of which is occupied,” he said.
Mentioning Georgia in this connection would have been natural, he continued, as it would have shown the dynamics in this whole process. First Georgia, then Ukraine, he said.
Margvelashvili emphasized that Georgia needs an ‘aggressive policy’ so that the issue of Georgia doesn’t fall off the agenda.
He continued saying that all his 30 meetings in Washington concerned Georgia’s security and territorial integrity, as well as Euro-Atlantic integration.
