UN Security Council To Discuss Russia’s Aggression
Having considered the Georgian side's appeal, the Security Council adopted a decision to satisfy Georgia's request and set a date for convening a special session on July 21.
The Security Council will gather for a closed-door session, reported PNA.
Permanent Representative of Georgia to the United Nations Irakli Alasania will attend and address the session.
The convening of the UN Security Council's special session in such an emergent manner clearly points to the international community's extreme concern over the Russian side's irresponsible, provocative and totally unacceptable acts.
Eduard Kokoity, de-facto president of South Ossetia, has claimed that he will demand to attend a special session of the UN Security Council, scheduled for 21 July. According to Kokoity, "an issue of flight of the Russian jets in airspace of the region" will be discussed. The de-facto leader reckons that any consideration of the above mentioned issue will be groundless without participation of Ossetian side.
