Talakvadze: Fighting Occupation Requires Pragmatic Policy Instead of Beating the Heart
"When you have 20 percent of the territories seized, when your citizens in the occupied regions suffer, they have no health and basic living conditions, of course this is a problem, but this is not a problem we have created, it has created the kind of region we are in. This reality needs to be corrected, we cannot distort this geography, and this geopolitics needs a pragmatic approach. It does not need beatings and aggressive pseudo-patriotism, it needs a pragmatic, responsible policy. Opponents cannot implement foreign and anti-occupation policies on our behalf. As long as we are in power, we do it and it is our responsibility. "
The Speaker of the Parliament of Georgia, Archil Talakvadze stated this on Imedi TV
