Georgia, Tbilisi, June 3 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Leader of the parliamentary minority of Georgia David Bakradze offered the majority to adopt a joint resolution on the situation in the secessionist regions.
The minority is ready to begin consultations on the draft resolutionç Bakradze said at a special briefing on Monday.
"We support the normalization of relations with Russia, but the normalization should not turn into such statements, which we have heard from some of our Ministers. On the one hand, we support the normalization, but then again we need to show them (Russia) our principled stand," Bakradze said.
He noted that theminority has two proposals to the majority. One of them concerns the law on the territories of the breakaway regions. The minority calls on the majority not to accept amendments that will harm the state.
The second proposal concerns the meeting of the National Security Council.
"On behalf of the minority I want to welcome the initiative of the President Mikheil Saakashvili to hold a meeting of the Security Council. It is important for the state to have an agreed common position," David Bakradze stated.
Large scale military actions were launched in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognised republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
