Georgia Appeals to Beijing
Apparently the Georgians appealed to China's sentiments about defending sovereignty and territorial integrity.
It helps that Georgia has never recognized Kosovo's independence, even despite strong pressure from its Western allies, so it can make the case in Beijing that Tbilisi does have a consistent position on the issue.
It is also interesting to note that, having come up short in terms of help from the U.S. and Europe, the decision was made to make an appeal to the Chinese.
Saak's finally found a clue!
In fact another analyst predicted the exact same thing.
Oleg Kobtzeff said on France 24 that the P.R.C. would eventually profit from all these intra-West squabbles.
