Georgia, Tbilisi, Jan.21 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
A Georgian parliamentary delegation will leave for Strasbourg tonight to attend the winter session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.
The delegation will again raise the issue of Russia's fulfillment of obligations and its de-occupation of the country's territories.
As a member of the Georgian delegation, Georgi Kandelaki, said, "Georgia's goal is to achieve the fulfillment of the resolutions of the Council of Europe."
Parliamentary Committee for European Integration Chairman David Darchiashvili will deliver a report at the session. His address was prepared upon the instructions of the PACE Monitoring Committee.
Military actions were launched in the unrecognized republic of South Ossetia in August 2008. Georgian troops entered Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia, and later Russian troops occupied the city and drove the Georgian military back to Georgia. Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia on Aug. 26 and established diplomatic relations with them on Sept. 9, 2008.
