Konstantin Kosachev believes that visits of George Bush to Latvia and Georgia might play a positive role in the improvement of Russian-Latvian and Russian-Georgian relations
Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev believes that visits of US President George Bush to Latvia and Georgia might play a positive role in the improvement of Russian-Latvian and Russian-Georgian relations. He offered such an opinion at a press conference on Tuesday. "If the statements made by the American side are not just empty words, President Bush's visit might play a very important and constructive role in the improvement of Russian-Latvian and Russian-Georgian relations," Kosachev said referring to the fact that he made this conclusion after a series of meetings in the State Department, the US president's administration and the US Congress. "I was told that Bush intends, in particular, to clarify the US position on the issue stating that the establishment of mono-ethnic communities in the Baltic states is impossible and the rights of Russian-speaking population of Baltic states must be fully protected in accordance with international law," Kosachev emphasized. He also informed the journalists that during his visit to Riga President Bush plans to meet with representatives of the Russian-speaking community in Latvia. "I think President Bush will find appropriate words to express his attitude toward attempts to glorify Nazism and revise the content and the results of World War II," Kosachev underlined. The chairman of the State Duma committee also believes that during his visit to Georgia President Bush plans to convince the Georgian leadership not to use forcible methods to solve the problems in the country. "According to my data, one of the goals of President Bush's visit to Georgia is to convince the Georgian leadership to stay on the course of political settlement of existing problems and avoid using radical or forcible approaches," Kosachev said
