PACE is going to discuss the Russian-Georgian relationship2010-04-26 11:10
The spring session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) is going to be opened today in Strasbourg. The Russian-Georgina relationship after the August 2008 conflict will become one of the basic points of the discussion. For instance, the Assembly will again return to the consideration of the report on "Consequences of the war between Russian and Georgia", RIA Novosti reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
It is notable that the issue will be discussed in PACE for the fifth time within an almost two-year period of time.
For the first time, the Assembly discussed the Russian-Georgian relationship within three days in October 2008. It asked Russia to withdraw its recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. At the same time, PACE did not support the proposal of the radically-minded parliamentarians to dispossess the RF delegation of voting rights for its involvement in the August events.
While commenting upon the relevant intentions of the Georgian party, Head of the Russian delegation Konstantin Kosachev pointed at the fact that so far he has got no idea of such plans. At the same time, he left open the possibility that the discussion of the report will turn into a passionate debate in the Assembly. Kosachev said that the Russian delegation has got a plan of actions in case of "an unforeseen situation", having added that if PACE takes a decision as to Russia's authority, the RF delegation will leave the session.
Former Head of the International Mission for Investigation of the Conflict Heidi Tagliavini is going to make a speech in the context of the coming discussion.
