The Georgian delegation will seek the appointment of a PACE rapporteur on Russian-Georgian relations
"The urgent debates scheduled for Thursday presume an exchange of opinions and not a resolution," Grigory Bokeria, the head of the Georgian delegation, told RIA Novosti. "We hope a rapporteur on Russian-Georgian relations will be appointed." When asked why the Georgian delegation chose to discuss Russian-Georgian relations in Strasbourg, Mr. Bokeria said that he hoped "the Council of Europe will force Russia to review its relations with Georgia." The Russian delegation sternly opposed the submission of this issue for PACE consideration. Konstantin Kosachyov, head of the Russian delegation, said the given situation may influence the sides of the Georgian-Ossetian and Georgian-Abkhazian conflicts. Mr. Kosachyov said he supported the settlement of Russian and Georgian disagreements within the framework of the special parliamentary group. Mr. Bokeria said that the parliamentary group was ineffective and that that was the main reason why Tbilisi submitted the issue for the Council of Europe's consideration. Mr. Bokeria opined that the debates on Thursday "will not be as placid as he hoped they would be, but they will escalate the present relations." Georgian parliament speaker Nino Burdzhanadze will also speak at the forthcoming debates.
