David Bakradze declares Nicolas Sarkozy’s UN speech a “natural reaction”
David Bakradze, Chair of the Parliament of Georgia, assessed the acute speech of Nicolas Sarkozy at the 63rd session of the UN General Assembly as a “natural reaction” to the conduct of the Russians. He stated the President of France mediated the ceasefire agreement which ended the Russian-Georgian war and his reaction was a natural response to Russia continually breaching its commitments under that agreement. Bakradze expressed the hope that the EU and its leadership will remain true to their principles and ensure the fulfilment of all the points of the agreement.
