OSCE losing trust - expert2010-12-15 16:54
OSCE was unable to restore its reputation after the failure in the South-Ossetian war in August 2008. This has been stated by Director for LINKS British non-governmental organization Dennis Sammut.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to PanARMENIAN.Net, Sammut believes that OSCE never restored itself after the failure to prevent the war in Georgia in 2008. "In the context of the South-Ossetian war, OSCE was an important international factor; however, the organization's restrictions became visible before, in the course of, and after the conflict. Presently, there is even no agreement on OSCE mission's returning to Georgia", - the British expert reminded.
He said that the OSCE summit in Astana did not gain any momentum for the organization's activity either. "The Astana summit did not result in any agreement on OSCE plan of action either, which is going to diminish the organization. The summit also failed to make any progress on the unsettled conflicts in the territory of the European and Euro-Asian regions, such as the Karabakh conflict. As is known, OSCE may act only upon consent of 56 member-countries, which becomes more and more difficult", - Sammut is sure.
"Nevertheless, the summit was useful in providing another opportunity to reconsider security in Europe and Eurasia", - he added.
Let us remind you that OSCE mission's work in Georgia was suspended in 2009 - it was Russia that set a veto on its further activity. It should be noted that the South-Ossetian government has repeatedly subjected OSCE mission representatives to severe criticism, accusing them of bias and promotion of Tbilisi's interests.
