PACE to discuss humanitarian consequences of August war again2009-04-24 15:40
Humanitarian consequences of August war will be discussed at the spring session of PACE [April 27th-30th , Strasbourg], the Council of Europe representative office in georgia informed - Novosti-Gruzia .gt-en-newsitem-inside
On April 27th , in the first day of the session, celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the CE will be held.
The discussions of the post-war situation will be held on April 29th. The agenda also includes discussion of measures adopted by Georgia and Russia to implement the Assembly Resolution 1647.
At October session of 2008 the post-august conflict situation was discussed for the first time. After the discussion the resolution was adopted. In that document the Assembly imposed responsibility for the events in the conflict area on Russia and urged Moscow to annul the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. That time PACE didn't support the initiative of radical MPs demanding to deprive the Russian delegation of the right to vote.
At its winter session PACE again condemned the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russia, but imposed no sanctions on Moscow. In the course of the discussion Georgian MPs proposed an amendment demanding to annul the recognition. Otherwise PACE would deprive the Russian delegation of the right to vote in April. The amendment failed (with only one vote contra more).
