President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili called statements that the West is encouraging Tbilisi to open a second front against Russia a "conspiracy theory."
"The Georgian people know very well that the idea of creating the European Union is exactly peace, not war. The European Union in Georgia directly serves the world of our country through the EU observation mission and peaceful development," she said.
Zurabishvili says that the Georgian government's "simulated scenarios" regarding the second front "match the references of Russia and the separatists."
"The fact that Tbilisi and Moscow speak the same language regarding this second front," she added.
Earlier, some Ukrainian politicians called on Georgia, against the background of Russian aggression against Ukraine, to open a "second front" against Russian troops and solve its territorial problems. The Georgian authorities say that they plan to settle territorial conflicts only by peaceful means. A number of Georgian politicians also claim that the West is calling Georgia to war. Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili, Western politicians and diplomats categorically deny this.
