Georgia, Tbilisi, April 11 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Today a spring session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) opened in Strasbourg. The session will consider two important resolutions on Georgia, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said at a traditional briefing on Monday.
"The first paper concerns the humanitarian issues after August war. And the second concerns non-fulfillment of obligations undertaken by Russia. The session began today and will run until April 15. We hope that the Council of Europe will reiterate support to Georgia," Kalandadze said.
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.
