RF is grateful to Council of Europe for its assistance in settling the problems of the Caucasus

2010-04-29 17:03

Moscow is going to welcome the contribution of the Council of Europe to the settlement of humanitarian problems in the Caucasus, Head of RF MFA Sergey Lavrov stated in Strasbourg.


"CE is already working there in the form of the institute of High Commissioner for Human Rights. These activities really bring relief to the people, so we support it. In this aspect, other mechanisms of the Council of Europe can make their contribution to resolving humanitarian problems that are still unsettled there", - the minister said.

While answering the question about the monitoring of the situation on the part of CE in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Lavrov underlined that he "does not know what kind of monitoring is meant".

"If one is talking about the monitoring applied to the members of the Council of Europe, then, one should first admit the relevant states to the Council of Europe and then start talking about it", - he summed up.

As was reported earlier by GeorgiaTimes, today Lavrov is going to meet CE Secretary General Turbjern Yagland and PACE Chairman Mevlut Cavusoglu; the discussion will be focused upon Moscow's liabilities before the Council of Europe and the Russian-Georgian relationship.
