Claims to Lomaya were uttered today in the Foreign Ministry, where the joint sitting of parliamentary committees for foreign relations and European integration was held. The Foreign Ministry presented the report on the Geneva Talks and the situation on the UN mission in Georgia prolongation. The UN plans to publish the resolution on Georgia on June 15th.
Nikoloz Laliashvili, one of the Christian Democratic party leaders, stated that because of Lomaya's statements concerning the UN Secretary General, Georgia was "on the verge of the diplomatic scandal, which might affect the UN resolution negatively". He added that the Georgian side should record its position in this aspect via various diplomatic opportunities. Laliashvili reminded that, according to Lomaya's statement, UN Secretary General was "blackmailed" and added he couldn't rule out the diplomat's recalling.
At the same time, the official Tbilisi strongly disagrees that view of the issue. Akaki Minashvili, the chairman of the parliamentary committee, believes that Lomaya's statement concerning Ban Ki-moon, was absolutely adequate.
"Mr. Lomya is one of the most successful statesmen, he is an adequate man, and I'm sure that exactly from the UN tribune, and at any level he can defend Georgia's interests", he said.
Previously Alexander Lomaya accused Russia of the attempts to exert pressure on the UN Secretary General. In his view, Russia attempted to make Ban Ki-moon to change the assessments in the latest report on Georgia.
