RF is not going to realize PACE resolutions concerning the August war2010-04-29 22:44
Russia is going to ignore any PACE resolutions concerning the August 2008 war in the Caucasus.gt-en-newsitem-inside
This has been stated today by Head of the RF MFA Sergey Lavrov while he was making a speech at the spring session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Rosbalt reports.
"We cannot realize the resolutions dictated by political considerations, which adoption causes regret", - the head of the Russian diplomacy said.
Lavrov expressed his opinion that the Council of Europe should work in order to realize definite projects that do bring good but "not in order to promote absolutely hopeless projects through this respected body".
Foreign Minister of Russia stated that it is necessary to admit these states to CE first so that the Council of Europe could perform monitoring in the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry underlined that Russia initially was not going to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and did not pursue any geopolitical purposes in the course of the Russian-Georgian war in August 2008: "We had no geopolitical plans when we reacted to the attack against our peacemakers and the peaceful residents of Tskhinval and other villages; we were saving the people".
Let us remind you that last January, PACE called upon Russia to withdraw the decision concerning the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, while in September 2009 the Assembly called upon Moscow to provide the international observers with an unlimited access to South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
