Saakashvili slams Turley’s Caucasus Platform

xin_43203062320077815289111Georgia’s President Mikheil Saakashvili said the Turkish-proposed Caucasus Stability and Cooperation Platform has acquired no “clear shape” yet and consultations were on their “very early stage.”

“We always welcome multilateral mechanisms,” Saakashvili said while speaking at a news conference on a sideline of a high-profile Brussels Forum late on March 21.

He, however, added, “I think we should not create any mechanism that would exclude European Union or other major actors in the region.”

“I think there should not be exclusive regional mechanisms; but I think any complementarity to already existing European Union structures, open to any positive actors in the region will be welcomed,” the Georgian leader said, reported.
