Ivanishvili Infuriated Over Rustavi 2 TV Reporter's Question About Karabakh

  • Friday, January 18, 13:18

Tbilisi.  Georgian Premier, Bidzina Ivanishvili, has been infuriated by Georgian Rustavi 2 TV reporter's question on Georgian Foreign Minister, Maia Panjikidze's statement on Nagorno Karabakh problem, made on January 10 - News Armenia reports.

Azerbaijani media outlets reported earlier that during Panjikidze's visit to Latvia, she had allegedly stated that "Karabakh conflict can be settled in favor of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan only". Meanwhile, Armenian journalists claimed their Azeri colleagues were disseminating inaccurate information and that at the aforesaid meeting Panjikidze had actually stated that she "respected Azerbaijan's territorial integrity", without even mentioning Nagorno Karabakh at all .

On January 15, Georgian Foreign Ministry released a video footage of the Minister's speech. According to it, Panjikidze reiterated support to the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, in general. However, she did not mention Nagorno Karabakh.

               "It is obvious that this matter is settled. Your TV channel has already said the matter was falsified, and you raise this issue again. You performed actively most, entertained us for two days, and later stated the matter was over," Ivanishvili harshly reacted.

               He said he did not want to go into details of that issue, adding that this issue had been discussed at the meeting with President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev.

               "This is indeed a complicated issue. It seems that it will be quite difficult to settle it in the near future. We support only peaceful settlement of this conflict. I wish the two sides could put much effort for peaceful settlement," Ivanishvili said at the joint news conference with his Armenian counterpart, Tigran Sargsyan, in Yerevan, on Thursday.

               Tigran Sargysan, in turn, thanked his Georgian colleague for the balanced stance on Karabakh issue.

"It is not a secret that quite often these or those statements on Karabakh are misrepresented. We are thankful to our Georgian colleagues for due reaction to put away the statements totally discrepant with Georgian government's official position," he said.
