Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept. 30 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
After a long heated debate, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has adopted the Monitoring Committee's resolution, which obliges Russia to fulfill its international obligations until Jan. 1.
The adopted resolution is more consistent compared to previous ones, head of the Georgian delegation to the PACE, Petre Tsiskarishvili, told journalists.
"This is the first time when the Council of Europe clearly fixed its claims towards Russia. However, no claim is made to Georgia, because we [Georgia] fulfills its obligations," Tsiskarishvili said.
According to Tsiskarishvili, the resolution did not take into account any proposal by Russia and its supporters.
After the adoption of the resolution the members of Russia's delegation did not hide their irritation. They stated that Russia does not intend to implement the resolution and if the resolution to exclude Russia from the Council of Europe is adopted on Jan.1, Russia will leave "and everything will be much more boring here."
