Georgian Interior Ministry accuses Russia of distortion spirit of UN Secretary General's report
Georgia, Tbilisi, May 19 / Trend , N.Kirtskhalia/
Russia grossly distorts reality related to the report of the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze told a briefing.
"The Georgian side will never agree to sign any document that would impair the territorial integrity of the country, and recognition of two virtual Bandustans on our territory," he said, stressing that a document was already received yesterday. But the document has not been made public at the request of the UN Secretariat.
Vashadze stressed that Russia is trying to abolish the UN mission in Abkhazia (Georgia) and is taking provocative steps for this purpose. "We also do not like the draft of the statement, but we have some concessions to keep the UN mission. But if the situation would go this route, we will never consent to an assignment, which somehow would infringe upon the territorial integrity," he said.
Georgian Foreign Minister said that the document was being considering. One more comment will be made on the issue.
The report does not connect Abkhazia with Georgia, although the report was based on early UN resolutions, which recognized the territorial integrity of Georgia.
Vashadze said that that was an intervening document and "major steps must be taken at the meeting of UN Council of Security in June."
