Yesterday Nugzar Tsiklauri, the chairman of the parliamentary committee for interrelations with compatriots abroad consulted with historians.
He said the representatives of peoples of North Caucasus had allegedly turned to the Parliament of Georgia with a request to recognize a so-called genocide of Chechens and Circassians.
Tsiklauri said a special group for friendship with peoples of North Caucasus had been established in the Parliament, and studied the issue. The MP requested scholars to study materials and present conclusions.
At the meeting they reached agreement on holding a discussion with participation of public figures and also making a film about the "genocide" of Chechens and Circassians.
The next meeting with historians will be held in the National Archives, and the topical materials will be studied at site.
