Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 5 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
The Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly has adopted another resolution in support of Georgia by 80 votes to 16, a source told Trend on Wednesday.
The document entitled "National sovereignty and statehood in modern international law - the need to clarify" was prepared by German MP Marina Schuster.
Shuster was the keynote speaker on the issue. She has criticized the Russian intervention in Georgia and reminded Moscow of the need to fulfill the obligations imposed on it by the resolution.
The document, including 12 countries, stresses the issue of territorial integrity as a separate item.
German MP thinks that the territorial integrity is the guarantor of stability.
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.
