Austria, Vienna, 28 August/ Trend , corr A. Alaskarov/ "Russia poses a threat for democracy not only in the region, but in many-post soviet states," Ekaterina Tkeshelashvili, Georgian Foreign Minister said in a special meeting of OSCE on Georgian-Russian conflict.
"The principles of international law, which calls for peaceful co-existence of sovereign states and based on equality, freedom, sovereignty, democracy and respect for human rights, is challenged by the use of force and breach of borders," Tkeshelashvili said.
"The territory previously known in Soviet times as South Ossetia is completely cleansed of remnants of the Georgian population," she said. Issuing passports to citizens of other country contradicts international principles.
The Georgian foreign minister described actions of OSCE as insufficient. "OSCE was not effective in preventing this tension. We see that UN Security Council is paralyzed in this situation as well," she said.
"The common tasks (for international community) are to prevent efforts of Russia to change world order which will produce domino effect not only in Georgia and in neighboring countries," she said.
