    TBILISI, March 16, 2004. (RIA Novosti) -- Speaker of the Georgian parliament Nino Burdzhanadze is ready to go to Batumi for negotiations with leader of the Adzharian autonomy Aslan Abashidze. She made such a statement while meeting newsmen on Tuesday.

    She believes that "there is a way out from the obtaining situation" and hopes that the "government of Adzharia will make necessary steps for resolving this complex problem in the interests of united Georgia." "The President of Georgia has positively reacted to the proposal on my visit to Batumi," Ms. Burdzhanadze said. She added that Mr. Saakashvili was for the peace settlement of the emerged conflict.

    Nevertheless, Mikhail Saakashvili would never reconcile himself to the situation, when for a trip to one of the country's regions the president has to obtain a special permit from someone or to the fact that a normal election campaign and elections are not held in some or other part of Georgia, the speaker pointed out According to her, "no specific time-limits were set for economic sanctions imposed upon Adzharia and the President considers these measures as a levers of pressure to bear upon Adzharia so that its authorities agree to make specific concessions." "When the unity of the country is at stake such concessions must be made," Nino Burdzhanadze opines.

    The Georgian leadership considers that there is no need for establishing the state of emergency on the whole territory of Georgia because of the crisis in Adzharia, Ms. Burdzhnadze added.
