TBILISI, DFWatch – OSCE’s Parliamentary Assembly Monday passed a resolution about Georgia, which uses the term ‘occupation’ about Russia’s military presence in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
The resolition also calls on Russia to live up to the terms of the ceasefire agreement of August 2008.
The ten-point document deals with the current situation in Georgia, and was prepared by Polish representative Michal Szczerba.
“…Concerned about the humanitarian situation of the displaced persons the both in Georgia and in the occupied territories of Abkhazia, Georgia and South Ossetia, Georgia as well as the denial of the right of return to their places of living,” the document says. “Urges the government and the parliament of the Russian Federation, as well as the de facto authorities of Abkhazia, Georgia, and South Ossetia, Georgia to allow the European Union Monitoring Mission unimpeded access to the occupied territories of Abkhazia, Georgia and South Osetia, Georgia as was previously agreed in the Ceasefire agreement and co-operate fully with the EUMM.”
The resolution was passed against the votes of the Russian representatives. The Georgian breakaway regions Abkhazia and South Ossetia calls the document biased. Russia argued that adopting this document will only complicate the situation in the two disputed regions.
