Georgian parliament issues special statement
Georgia, Tbilisi, Apr. 17 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
The Georgian Parliamentary Public Relations Department issued a special statement on the information spread by several agencies ("Pirveli" and "Interpress") that allegedly Poland asked the Georgian parliamentary delegation to refrain from visiting Warsaw for the funeral of the Polish President.
The department argues that the information contradicts the reality, since Poland did not make such an appeal. "Regarding the parliamentary delegation's Poland visit, the composition and form of the Georgian delegation has not yet defined as Poland still has not decided on the time of the remembrance ceremonies in Warsaw and Krakow," the statement says.
"Presently, it is known that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili will attend the funeral ceremony in Krakow on Sunday," the statement says.
Regarding the Saturday's funeral activities, the department notes that if the Polish authorities will decide that it will only national event, in this case the delegation of any country, including Georgia, will not visit Warsaw.
"We note that if Poland will decide on this, it will affect all foreign visitors, not just the Georgian delegation," the statement says.
The statement also noted that MP Eldar Kvernadze's statement on this matter was given inaccurate precisely for that reason.
