Georgia's foreign policy remains the same, acting President Nino Burdzhandze said in her televised night statement.
"Our foreign policy, i.e. commitment to integration into European and Euro-Atlantic structures, remains the same," she said.
Burdzhanadze also noted the importance of restoring good-neighbourly relations with "such a big country as Russia." According to Burdzhanadze, the latest parliament was not recognised legitimate due to mass falsifications and protests of peaceful civilians. "Therefore the parliament elected in 1999 remains legitimate," she said.
Burdzhanadze said that in line with the constitution, the date for early parliamentary and presidential elections would be fixed within 45 days since the resignation of Mr Shevardnadze.
She added that "protests have ended, and now law and order are being reinstalled." in this connection, Burdzhanadze called on all.
