/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "Russia will only benefit by Georgia’s withdrawal
from CIS, by renouncing its liabilities," Georgia’s Ambassador to CIS
Zurab Khonelidze stated, voicing his disapproval of Sahakashvili’s
decision to withdraw from CIS.

The Georgian President had first announced his decision to withdraw
from CIS in August 2008.

"Our country is no longer willing to belong with organization headed
by the state that has occupied Georgia’s territories," Sahakashvili
emphasized

Georgia submitted a petition to withdraw from CIS on Aug. 18, 2008,
yet the withdrawal can be effected only on the expiry of 1 year period
due on Aug. 18, 209.
