Baku – APA. President Mikheil Saakashvili welcomed the resolution on the internally displaced persons and refugees in Georgia adopted by the UN General Assembly, APA reports quoting Novosti-Gruziya agency. Saakashvili said the resolution was the first document adopted after the August war and added that Russia faced diplomatic fiasco.
“The resolution recognizes the right of return and property of the internally displaced persons and refugees, condemns changing of demographic situation by force and ethnic cleansing,” he said.

Saakashvili said Russia had recently used methods of blackmail and bribery to eliminate the issue from the agenda or change the resolution.
“Despite its backstage struggle and other methods, all EU member states supported Georgia’s territorial integrity and return of the refugees. Russia faced diplomatic fiasco. Neither Georgia nor international democratic forces will reconcile themselves to the aggression, attempt to occupy and ethnic cleansing in the 21st century. We will never compromise our main right – right of freedom and territorial integrity,” he said.
