Any international organization should accept Georgia with the territory and borders recognized by the international community, including by NATO, - Parliamentary Majority Leader Gia Volski said in response to Anders Fogh Rasmussen's statement that Georgia should start a discussion on whether it would be acceptable to join NATO without Abkhazia and “South Ossetia”.

 

According to Volski, neither we nor any political party will refuse these territories, because this is against the history and the state, which will not bring any good to anybody.

 

"You know, it's a controversial subject. There are issues we need to discuss. There should be a general consensus in the society, additional comments and clarification are needed. Neither we nor any of political force will refuse these territories, because this is against the history and the state, which will not bring any good to anybody.

 

Any international organization should accept Georgia with the territory and borders recognized and supported by the international community, including by NATO, which is fighting together with us to restore justice”, Gia Volski said.

 

Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former Secreatry General of North-Atlantic Teaty Organisation, told InterPressNews earlier today that Georgia should start an internal discussion of whether it would be acceptable to join NATO without Abkhazia and “South Ossetia”.

 

“If Georgia is to become a future member of NATO, you should continue reforms within democracy, that is determined fight against corruption, guarantee of rule of law, guarantee of free speech, free expression, guarantee of minority rights. But the main problem is Abkhazia and “South Ossetia”. Georgia fulfills the necessary criteria to become a NATO member except those de facto Russian-occupied territories. So I think Georgia should start an internal discussion of whether it would be acceptable to join NATO without Abkhazia and South Ossetia. It's for Georgia to decide and then you may go to NATO and tell them: We are ready to do that. What about you?”, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.
