Parliament Speaker: Lavrov Will Face Objections in Georgia
“If Lavrov arrives in Georgia, he will face objections, because our territories are occupied. He will come up against the principal political statements of our governmental team,” Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, Archil Talakvadze, told reporters while commenting on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s possible visit to Georgia.
Asked whether the Georgian side would allow Lavrov to enter Georgia, Talakvadze said, “the border crossing issues concern other agencies.”
“Georgia has taken over the chairmanship of the Council of Europe and we have taken the responsibility to carry out activities, including the Ministerial. If he comes to Georgia, he will face objections, because our territories are occupied and he will come up against the principal political statements of our governmental team. Georgia will have a very principled stance that the Russian government must fulfill its commitments, Georgia will have concrete conclusions and assessments regarding cases where our citizens’ rights have been severely violated, including killings, kidnappings, and illegal detentions,” he noted.
Georgia, as the Chair of Council of Europe’s (CoE) Committee of Ministers, will host a meeting of the Committee of Ministers of CoE in May.
Reportedly, Sergey Lavrov will represent the Russian delegation.
