Baltic, Polish Leaders Call for Stronger Western Support for Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 13 Aug.'08 / 13:23

Leaders of Baltic states and Poland have strongly called on EU and U.S. to make a proper assessment of Russia’s aggression against Georgia.

President of Estonia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Poland, as well as PM of Latvia arrived in Tbilisi on August 12 in a show of strong support to Georgia.

Speaking at a joint news conference on August 13, Valdas Adamkus, the President of Lithuania, invoked developments ahead of WWII and the devastating results of, as he said, policy of appeasement of Hitler. He said everyone should remember what followed this policy of appeasement.

President Adamkus also said he hoped the EU foreign ministers due to meet in Brussels on August 13 would make “a proper assessment of the aggression against Georgia.” He also added that the west should not leave Georgia alone.

Polish President, Lech Kaczynski, told the same press conference that Georgia was the very country where “our biggest ally [the United States] has to confirm its strong support.”

In a statement on August 12 Estonian President, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, has warned that “the Russian-Georgian war is a touchstone for the European Union for shaping European security policies in the future.”

“Europe must re-evaluate its entire current security and foreign policy and bring it into conformity with the new reality,” he said.

Latvian Prime Minister, Ivars Godmanis, said that no solution can be achieve at the expense of Georgia’s territorial integrity.
