"Recently renewed discussion of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, in our opinion, is unacceptable, since it would strengthen the separatist movement and creates new challenges in the country," Michael Botkoveli said.

Formally admitted to the Council of Europe in April 1999, Georgia has committed itself to sign and ratify the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages ​​within one year after entry. However, Georgia has not still done that, the News-Georgia recalls.

Representatives of the Republican Party in the city council of Akhalkalaki, which is inhabited mainly by Armenian population, demanded on March 14 the ratification of the Charter. Representatives of the "United National Movement" and members of the parliamentary majority, the representatives of the "Georgian Dream" spoke against the ratification of the document.
