President of France delivers ultimatum to Saakashvili--threatened with resignation?

Президент Франции предъявил Саакашвили ультиматум, пригрозив отставкой?

Today, in an address to the nation, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili stated that at negotiations of the French peace plan, supported by Russia, for the Georgian crisis, which was brought to him by the president of France, he categorically rejected all 6 points regarding the status of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Saakashvili said: "I did not accept this document, even though I was given an ultimatum stating that if I wished to remain in my post, I would have to sign this document. I will, to the very end, to the last drop of blood, support the territorial integrity [of Georgia] and will never consider such a possibility."
