New York – APA. “We must each refuse to stand silent in the face of this armed aggression, occupation, ethnic cleansing and assault on a UN member state. And we must stand united in rejecting the forced and illegal recognition of Georgia’s two separatist provinces,” said Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili addressing the 63rd session of the UN General Assembly, APA reports.
“We are called upon not just to respond to the particular question of one instance of armed aggression in a single place—but to define our attitude toward armed aggression in all places. Georgia was attacked because it is a successful democracy in our part of the world. Our response today is to make our democracy an even more robust. That is why I am announcing to you four categories of expanded democratic initiatives: First, we will strengthen the checks and balances of our democratic institutions, including granting greater independence to Parliament and to the judiciary. Second, we will provide additional resources and protections to foster greater political pluralism, including by increasing funding for opposition parties and ensuring they have greater access to the airwaves. Third, we will strengthen the rule of law by introducing enhanced due process, trials by jury, and lifetime judicial appointments. Fourth, we will expand and deepen protections of private property,” he said.
President talked of the urgent need to replace and transform the failed frameworks of negotiation and peacekeeping in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
