/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The US President Administration informed that
during his visit to Tbilisi next week George Bush will mark Georgia
as a state that transformed to democracy and whose example should be
followed by Armenia and Azerbaijan, RFE/RL reported. The officials
of the US Administration noted that Bus’s support to the policy
pursued by the Georgian leadership after the rose revolution should
not be perceived as a call for an analogous change of ruling regime in
Yerevan and Baku. Moreover, Washington does not consider the change of
power to be a necessary condition for democratic reforms in Armenia
and Azerbaijan. The US will collaborate with the governments of two
states to make the”next elections more democrati”.”We welcome reforms
both in power structures and beyond them. Opposition forced should
be engaged in peaceful democratic processes in Armenia and Azerbaijan”,
the source noted. It should be noted that George Bush will be the
first US President to visit the South Caucasus.
