PACE to decide on Georgian-Russian dossier on Wednesday

2010-06-21 17:37

According to an unnamed source in PACE, the future of Russian-Georgian dossier in Assembly will be decided upon on Wednesday - RIA Novosti.


The sitting will be held in the afternoon on Wednesday.

Previously Konstantin Kosachyov, the head of the International Committee of the State Duma [lower chamber of Russian parliament] previously said the dossier will be closed at the opening session of PACE.

According to Kosachyov, there are two approaches to the issue of discussion of Russian-Georgian relations after August 2008 conflict. The first: discussion at every session and making reports and resolutions. The second: understanding the discsussin should be finished and separate reports on relations of Moscow and Tbilisi. The latter is getting even more support, the diplomat added.

Previously Leonid Slutsky, the deputy head of Russian delegation to PACE, stated that David Wilshire, the Assembly rapporteur, presented a package of amendments implying closing of the Russian-Georgian dossier.

"Wilshire believes that after the report of ex-head of the EU international mission for investigation of events in South Ossetia Heidi Tagliavini, all facts and circumstances of the conflict were reported in a comprehensive way," he said.

"The rapporteur proposes to shift the discussion into frames of country monitoring of Russia and Georgia separately. The tension grade is decreasing dramatically," Slutsky added.

The Russian diplomat believes that full-scale return to the Russian-Georgian issue will be possible in autumn in the best case, as at summer session the issue of consequences of August 2008 war won't be discussed.

In his view, the most that can happen are debates without adoption of a binding resolution. "the Russian delegation continues working in Strasbourg on explaining its position. We are getting more and more supporters."
