Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on the decision of the Georgian delegation to PACE to refrain from participating in any decision-making process, which threatens to damage the credibility of the Council of Europe

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia fully endorses the decision of the Georgian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to refrain from participating in any decision-making process within this European forum, which threatens to damage the credibility of the Council of Europe. The Ministry notes with satisfaction that this standpoint of the Georgian delegation is shared by the members of the Parliamentary Assembly. This was confirmed today at the meeting of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly, which decided not to follow up on the proposals tabled by the co-rapporteurs of the PACE Monitoring committee on the consequences of war between the Russian Federation and Georgia Mr. Eorsi and Mr. Wilshire.

Subsequent to our Statement from 22 April, we have to emphasise once again that any resolution or a document steaming from the process, which is led by Mr. Wilshire, who has attempted to violate and ignore the fundamental principle of territorial integrity of Georgia, would be damaging to the 60-year old good reputation and standing of the Council of Europe as a benchmark of Human Rights and the Rule of Law in Europe and beyond. Georgian side has not yet received from Mr. Wilshire either explanation, or apology on his decision to meet with the representative of the Tskhinvali proxy regime in the so-called "embassy" in Moscow. We also await clarifications from the leadership of the Council of Europe on this issue.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs once again expresses its full readiness to facilitate the work of the members of the Parliamentary Assembly, within their mandates, even when it comes to establishing contacts with the representatives of the proxy regimes. However, the Georgian authorities and PACE, as it became apparent at today's Monitoring Committee will not tolerate the attempts to challenge our statehood, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Tbilisi, 25 April 2010
