Georgia, Tbilisi, July 30 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
The U.S. Senate has today considered and unanimously adopted a resolution in support of Georgia, Georgian Ambassador to the U.S. Temur Yakobashvili told Georgian journalists today.
A group of senators from both parties represented in the Senate - Republican and Democratic has developed a draft resolution.
The document criticized Russia's official position on the conflict with Georgia over Abkhazia and South Ossetia. It requires the full implementation of the agreement dated Aug. 12, 2008.
The resolution underscores the refugees' right for complete and dignified return to their homeland. A seven-page document reflects the Georgian-Russian relations in detail.
The United States emphasizes that it supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia.
"The U.S. support to Georgia is manifested in large scale now, as the resolution pointed out that this is not about conflict in Georgia, but about a conflict - between Russia and Georgia," Yakobashvili said.
He said this resolution will create a "significant base" for a number of future actions.
Earlier, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution on Georgia, where the status of "occupied territories" was kept in regard to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Russia stated that the Assembly continues to incorrectly classify the events in the region.
