Gilauri: U.S. Senate recognizes Georgia’s “occupation”

2011-02-04 14:48

13110.jpegHead of the Georgian government Nika Gilauri declared that American Senate will soon adopt a resolution stating the "occupation of the Georgian territory" by Russia. 


Let us remind you that the U.S. Senate is to consider the resolution on Georgia supporting the principle of the country's "territorial integrity" and using such term as "ethnic cleansing" in respect of the Russian party's actions during the August-2008 events.

According to Rosbalt, during his visit to the USA, Gilauri expressed assuredness that American senators would vote for the document.

Earlier, Speaker of the Georgian Parliament David Bakradze had stated that the resolution would become a signal for the countries that consider the possibility of recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia's independence.

"I am sure the document will let them think once again and will help us actively continue our work in the European countries so that they also admit the word "occupation" and adopt relevant resolutions in the nearest time", - Bakradze underlined.

In its turn, MFA of RF took the resolution very negatively. "Of course, we do not deny the American lawmakers' right to provide their own assessment of the situation in the region but we have to state with regret that the draft resolution, as well as many Congress members, ignores the new reality that has developed after the aggression launched by Saakashvili in August 2008, - Russian diplomats stated. - These actions (and the fact that Tbilisi initiated the aggression is hardly denied today) led to the formation of new independent states, Abkhazia and South Ossetia", - goes the appeal of the Russian foreign policy administration, which is dedicated to the submission of a draft resolution regarding Georgia's "territorial integrity" to the U.S. Senate Commission for Foreign Affairs.
