Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept 7 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
U.S. Congress to consider another resolution on Georgia.
Presumably it will happen in mid-September, Georgian Ambassador to the U.S. Temur Yakobashvili said.
"It is important that the Congress will pass a resolution, which is associated with Georgia, and the Georgian-American relations and de-occupation. Resolution has been introduced and approved by the Committee on Foreign Relations," Yakobashvili said.
The resolution will support democratic changes in the country and it will call for Russia to respect Georgia's territorial integrity and to withdraw its troops from the occupied territories, the ambassador said.
Military actions were launched in the Georgian territory, South Ossetia on Aug.8 in 2008. Later the Russian troops occupied the city of Tskhinvali and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognised the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced the two unrecognised republics as occupied territories.
