Kosachyov: PACE will not insist on Russia’s renunciation of recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia2009-01-26 14:38
PACE resolution on South Caucasus conflict, the central object of discussion at the winter session of PACE (started today), includes no strict demand to cancel recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, said Konstantin Kosachyov, the chairman of the State Duma Committee for foreign affairs - ITAR TASS.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Kosachyov called the proposed draft a "far more balanced" one comparing with the document agreed by the Assembly in October 2008. "That approach of PACE was perfunctory", Kosachyov stated. The report on implementation of the resolution on war between Georgia and Russia consequences will be discussed by PACE on Wednesday, on January 28th, he informed.
The MP underlined that the Russian delegation still disagrees with some demands of the document and prepared 33 amendments.
In October 2008 PACE condemned the conflict in South Caucasus and campaigned for international investigation of the events in South Ossetia. That time the Council of Europe parliamentarians insisted on Russia's cancellation of recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
