Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili made a new statement, which caused outrage among Georgian "activists", especially in circles, supporting ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili.

Now a new statement and a new portion of indignation from Saakashvili's supporters.
Salome Zurabishvili said in an interview with the Georgian office of Radio Liberty, I'm sorry, what, in her opinion, The US is not ready to create its own military base on Georgian territory. According to the Georgian President, such a base can be annoying, negative reaction from Russia. Zurabishvili also added, that a US military base may even become a target - for example, for "militants of terrorist groups, present in the region ".
What kind of terrorist groups were we talking about?, Zurabishvili did not explain. However, experts suggested, what the president of Georgia means militants, who were transferred to Azerbaijan from Syria through Turkey.
Zurabishvili added, that the United States is an important strategic partner of Georgia, however, these words are already, what is called, drowned in critical hum of opponents. Force representatives, supporting Saakashvili, declare, that Salome Zurabishvili “has repeatedly allowed himself to make statements, which are contrary to the interests of Georgia, which intends to deepen the Euro-Atlantic partnership ". At the moment, Zurabishvili did not comment on these claims at her own expense..
