Georgian ambassador in the UN speaking on foreign policy priorities2008-11-14 12:01
Irakly Alasania, Georgian ambassador in the UN, defined three priorities in Georgian foreign policy. These are: statement of a question on non-recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, integration in Europe, ensuring the right of refugees to return to Abkhazia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
«We must turn into an indispensable pat of European security architecture », - Alasania said in his interview to a Georgian daily, The 24 Saati newspaper.
«At the same time, our Western allies should see that Georgia is forming in a truly democratic country. The aims declared and presented by the president Saakashvili in New York, on the debates in the UN General Assembly, must be fulfilled», - Nasha Abkhazia (Our Abkhazia) quotes the ambassador.
According to Alasania, «it's vital to establish an institutional system of decision-making in the country, that will exclude sole decisions and decrease the threat of Georgia being involved in provocations».
Though international community supports Georgian non-recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia, diplomats will have to work hard to sustain this tendency.
As the ambassador pointed out, Tbilisi should be more active in appealing Abkhazia to direct negotiations.
