CDM demands withdrawal of Georgian ambassador to UN
Georgia, Tbilisi, June 5 / Trend , N.Kirtzkhalia/
A member of the Christian-Democratic Movement, MP Nika Laliashvili demands put on the agenda the withdrawal of the Ambassador of Georgia to the UN Alexander Lomaia. He made this statement at a meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Relations, which took place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on June 5.
Laliashvili said the appropriate response should be given to the ambassador's recent statement, in which Lomaia said that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is under blackmail.
"We narrowly escaped a diplomatic scandal, and this may be very badly reflected in the resolution of the organization. The Georgian side must record their negative position with regard to this statement, or put on the agenda of the withdrawal of the ambassador," he said.
This demand was not accepted by members of the parliamentary majority, because they considered Lomaia's as adequate.
Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations Akaky Minashvili said Lomaia was one of the most successful public servants and it is confirmed by the UN from the podium.
"He can defend the interests of all of Georgia," the MP added.
In turn, parliamentarian Giorgi Kandelaki believes that this statement, by contrast, yielded some positive results. Diplomacy also means abrupt and fixation positions," he said.
