Re-elected Georgian leader Mikheil Saakashvili spoke out on Saturday for improving
Re-elected Georgian leader Mikheil Saakashvili spoke out on Saturday for improving relations with Russia, which reached their lowest point during his first presidential term.

"We should unfreeze our relations, particularly during this unusually cold winter for Georgia," he told his first new conference after the January 5 elections.

"My great regret is that relations were spoiled with Russia during my first presidential term. I will not elaborate on who is to blame, because either side has their own thoughts. But we should be looking to rectify this," said Saakashvili.

According to the country's central election commission, Saakashvili garnered 53.4% of votes, but results will be officially announced on Sunday.

Saakashvili's nearest rival, united opposition candidate Levan Gachechiladze, won 25.6% of votes. Gachechiladze called the election rigged, and demanded a second round of polls.
