Davitaya: too early to declare Minsk’s recognition of Abkhazia and SO2009-11-18 14:42
According to Vice Speaker of Georgian Parliament Paata Davitaya it's not the time yet to speak about the possibility of Belarus's recognition of Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's independence, RIA Novosti reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Davitaya told about his participation in the meeting between the parliamentary opposition and a delegation of the Belarusian parliament. "I tried to explain what is going on in Abkhazia, that recognition of Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's independence must be avoided by all means".
The Vice Speaker believes the Belarusian delegation "was positive" on the issue.
During the day the Belarusian deputies will also meet with Georgian FM Grigol Vashadze, State Minister for Reintegration Temur Yakobashvili and Deputy Interior Minister Ekaterina Zguladze.
The Belarusian deputies will meet with the head of South Ossetia's interim administration Dmitry Sanakoev and the chairman of Abkhazia's "alternative government" Georgy Baramia.
Tomorrow the Belarusian delegation plans to visit Gori and Zugdidi and meet with the heads of Shida Kartli and Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti district administrations as well as with the refugees living in compact communities there.
On the evening of November 19 the Belarusian deputies will return to Tbilisi to meet with Minister for Refugees and Resettlement Koba Subeliani. Then they will be received by Ilia II, Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia.
Russia recognized Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's independence on August 26 2008 in the aftermath of the entry of the Georgian troops to South Ossetia on August 8. As a result of Georgia's military aggression Tskhinval, the capital of the republic, was almost completely destroyed, and over 200 civilians were killed. Russia responded by enforcing peace in Georgia and protecting Russian citizens.
