Saakashvili Offered A Multibillion-Dollar Deal To The Georgian Government
Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili offered a deal to Tbilisi, in which he promised to bring about 5.5 billion dollars from foreign partners to the country to repair damage from the coronavirus. He said this on the air of the TV company "Mtavari Archi."
Saakashvili admitted that he will find the necessary funds if the Georgian authorities grant him temporary official status as a representative of the state leadership and postpone the consideration of the cases brought against him until the autumn. The former President is ready to apply for support in all European capitals.
"All legal disputes should be postponed for the future and a moratorium should be declared until the autumn. After the fall, you can continue my legal processes, convict me for various actions, and so on. Give me the status of a temporary official representative of the Georgian leadership in only one issue – in the process of receiving foreign aid, and I guarantee that I will bring 5.5 billion in aid – enough to save the country's economy," Saakashvili said on television.
Saakashvili noted that he knows almost all modern political leaders and representatives of financial organizations.
According to him, only foreign support will save Georgia in the current circumstances. Otherwise, the economic crisis against the background of the coronavirus pandemic will most likely lead the country to poverty and hunger, the former Georgian leader stressed.
Saakashvili left Georgia immediately after the inauguration of the new President George Margvelashvili in 2013. At home, he is on the domestic wanted list because of the criminal cases brought against him.
Earlier, Sputnik radio reported that Saakashvili intends to "end the regime" of the ruling party in Georgia.
