Parliamentary committee makes statement in follow up of Medvedev’s visit to Tskhinval

2009-07-14 13:08

Interim parliamentary committee for restoration of the country's territorial integrity has disseminated a statement in follow-up of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Tskhinval on July 13.


Georgian deputies accused the Russian president of ignoring international norms and positions of the UN Security Council, the Council of Europe and OSCE that openly support Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

It is highlighted in the statement that Medvedev's visit took place a week after his meeting with the US President which "is a clear indication of Russia's gross intervention in another country's internal affairs and de facto annexation of its territories".

It is believed in Tbilisi that Russian President's visit to South Ossetia "suspiciously coincided" with the signature of Nabucco agreement the implementation of which "will not allow Russia to use energy levers for political purposes".

The statement emphasizes that Tskhinval welcomed the head of the state "which had been against termination of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo and hampered international efforts to mitigate its consequences", which had refused to recognize Kosovo's independence and still "had unilaterally recognized independence of Georgian territories - Abkhazia and South Ossetia".

"Unfortunately the Russian government has not yet realized the global threat of separatism and predictable results of ill-considered policies that will sooner or later boomerang from its constituents", - it is stated in Tbilisi.

The committee calls on the international community to evaluate Medvedev's visit to Tskhinval and repeatedly admit that "Georgia would not put up with occupation of the Georgian territories".
