Georgia, Tbilisi, March 23 /Trend, N.Kirtskhalia/
The President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (PA) Karl Lamers is ready to assist Georgia in its dialogue with Russia.
Conflicts should be resolved peacefully, Lamers said on 76th Rose-Roth seminar of the NATO PA held in Tbilisi.
Lamers said the conflict resolution has never been an easy process, but to achieve positive results is possible.
"I am confident that the dialogue between Russia and Georgia will take place. Everyone knows that conflict is not solved by simple means, it requires patience. I am confident that we can achieve this together," said Lamers.
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.
