Russian delegation in PACE is ready for a constructive dialog with Georgia2009-01-28 12:39
Russian delegation in PACE is ready for a constructive dialog with Georgian parliamentarians, said Konstantin Kosachev, the Chairman of the State Duma Committee for International Affairs, in his interview to ITAR TASS.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Kosachev, at today's meeting of PACE winter session two issues are to be discussed: Resolution on the consequences of the war between Georgia and Russia implementation and humanitarian consequences of the August conflict.
When he touched upon the formula of the resolution on the situation on Caucasus adopted at October PACE session, Kosachyov mentioned that, in fact, they disagreed with that formula in October and, moreover, cannot agree with it now.
"In our view, the Assembly wrongly assessed the character of events, made a wrong diagnosis, and thereby prescribed the wrong medicine, which is hard to use, speaking of the rights and interests protection of the victims", he underlined.
When he commented upon the proposition of the PACE Presidential Committee to establish the direct dialog between Russian and Georgian delegations at the Assembly stage, Kosachyov highlighted that "this dialog will make sense only when it is constructive".
"Thereupon we suggest our Georgian colleagues, in the first line, to renounce all attempts to harm the Russian delegation in PACE, - he said. - In October our Georgian colleagues signed the proposition to deprive the RF delegation of all authorities and voted for it unanimously. That time it had only 17 votes pro, including the five of the Georgian delegation. If Georgian parliamentarians go on in this way, there are few chances to restore trust and establish dialog with our Georgian colleagues. If they revise their position, we do not exclude contacts of that kind".
"We still want to live in peace and harmony with the people of Georgia, that is why we do not exclude contacts of that kind with its elected representatives, i.e. Georgian parliamentarians, despite the absence of diplomatic relations between our countries", the head of the Russian delegation concluded.
