Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept. 24 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
A rally on the restoration of diplomatic relations with Russia will be held in Tbilisi on September 24. It is organised by the 'Eurasian choice - Georgia' coalition of non-governmental organisations.
One of the coalition leaders and chairman of the Irakli II Society Archil Chkoidze said protesters will gather at Kashveti Church on Rustaveli Avenue and march to the Foreign Ministry.
They will voice their main grievances and try to draw the authorities' attention to this important issue.
According Chkoidze, the organisers' main purpose is to attempt to draw the authorities' attention to the problem.
"We want our government to take into account the requirement as it is possible to restore the territorial integrity of Georgia and resolve conflicts only by restoring good relations with Russia," he added. "In any case, if we do not restore diplomatic relations with Russia, only Georgia will lose.
"People often say it is impossible as there are three Russian embassies in Georgia. For example, Japan and Russia are disputing the Kuril Islands. Japan claims these islands are occupied by Russia, but does not break diplomatic relations."
He stressed the restoration of diplomatic relations with Russia in the future will simplify the visa regime for Georgian citizens and play a positive role in ensuring the security of the country and help resolve the conflicts in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
The repeated referendum on Georgia's foreign policy and the advisability of its integration into the EU and NATO will be another requirement.
