Mr. Japaridze, a deputy foreign minister of the Soviet Republic of Georgia, spoke before the World Affairs Council on the independence movement in Soviet Georgia. He discussed the failed coup by communist hard-liners from the perspective of the people in the Republic of Georgia, and also the overwhelming sentiment favoring independence experienced by almost every Soviet republic following the coup. Mr. Japaridze said there is no longer any central government in the Soviet Union, but also said the independence movement would create “a flowering of the human spirit” to replace the control of the central government. Mr. Alexidze also commented on the independence movements in the Soviet Union, and both men responded to questions from the audience on current conditions in their country. close
