Terry Davis: both Russia and Georgia are responsible for the August events

2009-01-27 16:07

Russia and Georgia are equally responsible for the August events in the Caucasus and their humanitarian consequences, stated Terry Davis, the Secretary General of the Council of Europe at today's meeting with the journalists in the course of winter session of PACE - ITAR TASS.


According to Davis, both sides violated their obligations to CE to settle conflicts peacefully when they took up arms.

He touched upon the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by the Russian Federation and said that the Council has no right to dictate decisions on this issue to its members.

At the same time Davis reminded that Russia had always campaigned for territorial integrity of the CE member countries, especially during the war in Chechnya, and the CE had shared its position.

According to the Secretary General, Thomas Hammarberg, the CE Commissioner for Human Rights, visited the region several times and regards the situation in South Ossetia as catastrophic.

It made him state that both sides of the conflict keep CE experts, willing to render aid to children, who face a rather hard post-conflict situation, out of the republic.
