Georgian opposition: Tagliavini’s conclusions will lead to recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia

2009-10-01 17:22

The international commission on investigation of the August war recognized Georgia as an aggressor, and it might add stimulus to the process of recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, believes Shalva Natelashvili, the leader of pro-opposition Labour party - RosBalt.


He thinks the only way out will be resignation of President Mikheil Saakashvili.

"The process of international isolation of our country will continue, the legitimization of recognition of Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia will deepen, and finally it can end with an immense confrontation within the country", Natelashvili said.

Previously Georgia Times reported that The international commission for investigation of circumstances of the August 2008 war in Caucasus, headed by Heidi Tagliavini, called Saakashvili's regime responsible for unleashing the conflict in South Ossetia.

In particular, the document states that ungrounded assault of Georgia on South Ossetia became the reason of the August war.

Its authors came to the conclusion that having attacked South Ossetia in August 2008, Georgia violated the international law.

The commission also mentioned Russia's actions in response were legal at first - when they were of defensive character, but then went beyond reasonable limits.

According to the commission, the possibility of a new confrontation in Caucasus remains serious.
