Georgian parliamentary opposition agrees to all clauses of the statement recently adopted by the country's supreme legislative authority on Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's trip to Tskhinval, as Guram Chakhvadze of the parliamentary minority stated, New Region reports.


According to him at the time of statement adoption the oppositionists were at the meeting with Spanish MPs and could not personally attend the voting. As the deputy said the opposition entirely supports the parliamentary majority over the issue.

"I would like to express my own and my colleagues' position. Unfortunately we cannot add our votes technically but politically we unanimously approve of this statement", - Chakhvadze said.

Chairman of Georgian Parliament David Bakradze welcomed this decision of the opposition.

As GeorgiaTimes reported earlier, recently the deputies unanimously adopted "Statement of the Parliament of Georgia on Illegal Entry of the President of the Russian Federation Dimitri Medvedev on the Georgian Territory Occupied by Russia". The authors of the 7-clause document call on the international community to give legal assessment to "illegal entry of the President of the Russian Federation to Tskhinval district", urge Russia to "to carry out de-occupation of the occupied Georgian territories" and "fully implement the European Union-brokered Cease Fire Agreement" of August 2008.

It was reported yesterday that parliamentary minority had not taken part in the voting on leaving the session in protest to amendments to the law on assembly and manifestation and on police.
