Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili today will take the White House with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama.

Mr Saakashvili, who appears ready to give the Georgian territory in the event of an escalation of the conflict with Tehran, explaining the desire to protect the country from “the Russian military threat.”

Georgian opposition says that one of the topics discussed in the Oval Office will be the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections in Georgia. “Obama will require Saakashvili to parliamentary elections in autumn 2012 and presidential in 2013 were fair - said” b “Chairman of the” New Right “Gamkrelidze .- From Saakashvili will require clear commitments, and it will be very difficult to break them before the President the U.S.. ”
