Georgia on Wednesday celebrated its Day of Independence with a military parade and the opening of a new memorial monument.

"Today, one of the oldest nations is celebrating the Day of Independence and its young sovereignty. This is the most precious day for the freedom-loving nation," President Mikheil Saakashvili said in a public speech.

The presidential address was followed by a military parade at the central avenue of the capital city involving thousands of troops and military equipment and aircraft.

Saakashvili also attended the opening ceremony for a new memorial monument in Tbilisi, which he said was dedicated to heros who died fighting for the unity and territorial integrity of the Caucasus country.
