Karasin: Russia Will Attend the Planned Ministerial in Tbilisi

The former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Grigory Karasin, has stated that the Russian delegation will attend the planned Council of Europe Ministerial in Tbilisi.

Karasin adds that specifically which delegate will represent the Russian Federation is yet to be known. The main dispute surrounding the Georgian political spectrum is whether Sergei Lavrov, the acting FM of Russia, will attend the ceremony or not. The Ministerial will take place in May.  

Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili says the country is ready to host a Russian deputation at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Ministerial in Tbilisi.

"We are a state that respects our international obligations and will accept the Parliamentary Assembly because we respect the regulations and the principles of the organization," Zurabishvili said in January.
