Tbilisi - Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili visited several Georgian villages near the South Ossetian border on Monday evening and promised their residents that Georgia would return the "occupied" lands and that it would enter NATO and the European Union. 

"We will unite our country and return our lands by all means… Russia will never be able to swallow the occupied lands of central Georgia as no invader has been able to do," he said.

"Georgia will definitely join the European Union and it will definitely become a NATO member. Nobody can prevent us from doing that," Saakashvili said.
