2013-04-23 11:49

Representatives of the Georgian and Russian delegations participating in PACE session in Strasbourg, do not intend to hold joint meetings. This was announced by the chairman of State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Alexey Pushkov, the News-Georgia reported.


"The meeting of the Georgian and Russian delegations is not intended," Pushkov told the Georgian TV channels.

In turn, Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of Georgia Tedo Japaridze said that "the official meeting of the representatives of the delegation is not planned, but I do not rule out an informal meeting between me and Pushkov like during the last session."

Meanwhile, according to the deputy head of the Russian delegation Leonid Slutsky, Abkhazia and South Ossetia should be allowed to work in PACE.

According to him, these countries deserve the same rights as those that currently Kosovo enjoys: PACE Bureau decided to grant Kosovo parliamentarians an opportunity to work in the PACE commissions and attend the plenary session of the Assembly without the right to vote, the Rosbalt reported.

During the speech, Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili briefed PACE Secretary General on the ongoing reforms in Georgia. They also discussed the issue of the settlement of the Georgian-Russian relations.
