Russia created frozen conflicts in Georgia - Barack Obama

Publish Time 2016-10-19 12:12:00


Russia created frozen conflicts in Georgia, - US President Barack Obama said at a press conference after meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzo, when one of the journalists asked him if he agreed with Donald Trump's assertion that the US President does not sufficiently respect the Russian President.

“Let me just speak broadly about Russia. When I came into office, Russia, under the previous administration, had invaded parts of Georgia and created a frozen conflict there.

There was a new president and we tried to initiate a more constructive path with respect to U.S.-Russia relations. And I think we showed Russia plenty of respect, acknowledging enormous differences and different values, but also trying to find ways in which we could cooperate together”, he said.

According to him, the challenge with Russia was very much centered in Russian aggression in some very particular areas around the world, in Ukraine, where they have engaged in similar conduct to what they did in Georgia.
