The document underlines, that even before the beginning of the war, the strength of Russian contingent exceeded the permissible level of peacemaking forces in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. It caused tension growth in both regions, Novosti Gruzii (News of Georgia) informs.
In August 2008 raids on Georgian settlements grew more often, and the rule had to respond from the position of strength.
NATO PA noticed that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are the constituents of Georgia, and Moscow accepted this fact in the resolution, adopted at the UN Security Council on April, 15th, 2008.
MPs pointed at disproportional use of force by Russia against Georgia, occupation of Georgian territories by Russian armed forces; mentioned ethnical purges of Georgian population in South Ossetia and failure of complete fulfillment of the cease-fire agreement.
Assembly participants pointed out the necessity of independent investigation of the conflict. In their view, the only solution is a political dialog and negotiations.
NATO PA also made a request for governments and parliaments of the NATO member countries to assist deployment of international peacemaking forces in South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
Besides, the declaration includes the request to propose Georgia MAP (Membership Action Plan) and assist it in restoration of the infrastructure, damaged during the conflict.
