Lavrov and Rice discuss the question of Saakashvili's departure

Лавров и Райс обсудили вопрос ухода Саакашвили

US Ambassador to the UN Zalmay Khalizad stated on August 10 that head of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice discussed in a telephone conversation the question of the departure of Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.

Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaliy Churkin remarked that in history "there have been many democratically and semi-democratically elected heads of state," who at certain times have become the cause of problems within their own country. If this is the case, then sometimes such leaders make the decision to leave, remarked Churkin.
