Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili has responded to Dmitry Medvedev`s accusations. He said the acting government has turned Georgia into a successful country which Russia is unable to catch up.
"Therefore, successful Georgia is the greatest nightmare for them. The country, they have declared destroyed and finished, has recovered from the ashes and achieved such a progress that is exemplary not only for the Russia`s opposition, but the heads of teh government as well", he said.
Saakashvili said Russia wants to replace the Georgian government with the force which either directly or indirectly would legalize the occupation of the Georgian territories.
He added that if the Russian government is ready to return to Georgia the control over the occupied territories and withdraw its troops from there, he is ready to immediately fly to Russia and sign the agreement on his and his government`s resigning.
