Expert: NATO PA resolution on Georgia is waste paper2010-11-18 15:51
Well-known Russian expert Timur Teplenin has called to treat the resolution taken by NATO Parliamentary Assembly on Georgia as an utterly frivolous document.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"In my opinion, NATO PA's resolution should be treated calmly, as well as the majority of scrap paper produced by various "parliamentary sessions" and other "representative forums", - the expert is cited by IA OSinform.
He says it is quite obvious that the Alliance Assembly's decision was purposefully taken before NATO summit in Lisbon. "It would be naivety to think that the North-Atlantic hawks will pave the way to the summit with rose petals. There is the traditional "trump-card collection" going on before the negotiating process, maneuvering in order to occupy the "ruling tops". Tbilisi's show with "Russian spies" who suddenly turn out to be current Georgian special service officers is the same kettle of fish. The statements about the "occupied territories" and the demand to withdraw the troops, as well as hinting at Georgia's future membership in NATO reveal the desire to get unshatterable ideological trump cards, just like the classical Soviet one: "And you lynch blacks in your country", - Timur Teplenin underlined.
"The parliamentarians' role is to say anything that comes to their mind. Or anything they are asked to say. If we take literally everything said by the hawkish Vladimir Volfovitch, an experienced parliamentarian, the best document to be issued by NATO Parliamentary Assembly today would be an act of unconditional surrender. Thus, our current task is purely an applied one: watch the frontier, shoot down air drones as much as we can and lead a diplomatic fight in all directions", - he added.
Let us remind you that the NATO Parliamentary Assembly meeting was held on November 16, where a resolution on supporting Georgia's "territorial integrity" was adopted. Deputy Head of Georgian MFA Nino Kalandadze has stated that "it means the alliance members strongly support the Georgian reforms and territorial integrity".
"The mentioned resolution differs from the earlier passed ones by its contents and relevance", - she added.
