Dick Marty: “We need a constructive dialogue”2010-12-22 12:29
Head of the PACE Monitoring Committee Dick Marty avoids commenting upon his visit to Georgia in the press, Echo of Caucasus reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The European official's visit coincided with the Strasbourg parliamentarians' attempt to find a new format of work with the so-called "Georgian file".
Tbilisi puts the blame for the deadlock on Moscow. According to the resolutions of the Council of Europe, Moscow should withdraw the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia's independence and fulfill the Medvedev-Sarkozy agreement.
Russian deputies are stressing the "new realities" to be taken into account by Europe. Ultimately, every session of the assembly dedicated to the "Georgian file" ends in heated debates and demands to deprive Russia of the voting right.
"Confrontation should be succeeded by a dialogue", - that was the way Dick Marty described the new approach to the problem this fall.
In his official letter to the leadership of the Council of Europe, he made several proposals as to what should be done to improve relationship between Tbilisi and Moscow.
