Diena - Latvia | 17/01/2013

Georgia between two stools

Georgia's new Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze travelled to Riga on her first official foreign visit on Monday and emphasized her country's efforts towards integration in the West. The daily Diena expresses understanding for this position but sees it as irreconcilable with her country's improved relations with Russia: "The foreign minister was at a loss to explain how this apparently impossible goal since the 1990s can be achieved - moving towards the West while at the same time improving relations with Moscow. Only once the irreconcilability of these two objectives has been recognised will the path that leads to the West become easier. ... Unofficially, a state with territorial problems like Georgia's [with Abkhazia and South Ossetia] cannot join Nato. However one could also argue that constant airspace surveillance could deter quite a few [of Nato's] enemies."
