But to give such statement is not enough, also need to act in this way. During his visit to Armenia, Mr. Ivanishvili said that he supports cooperation between Georgia and NATO, like Armenia. We do not just want to be partners with NATO, we look at the organization as a family and we wish to be its full member. This main goal of our foreign policy. In such issues between us, there are differences. But the positive is that our new government suspended rhetoric existed between us and Russia. Despite all this, I do not see any section in the future of Georgia and I am very optimistic on this score. We, together with the Georgian people will find a way out of this situation."

Answering the question of the Russian delegates, the Georgian leader reiterated that the two peoples have no problems: "We want Russia abandoned its imperial ambitions and territorial claims to the neighbors. Besides the problem of the occupation, we have no problems with Russia. Once I have said to Putin that I will be the last president of Georgia, speaking in Russian. That is, regardless who is the president of Georgia, as Russia try to attract some of the Georgian policy on its side, Georgian people will not give their land to anyone. This is the Russian policy-makers need to understand. I respect the Russian people, and have never been a supporter of a feud with neighbors."
