The Parliamentary Assembly of La Francophonie (APF), at its last plenary sitting, adopted a Georgian delegation-drafted resolution in support of Georgia’s territorial integrity.
MP Eliso Bolkvadze introduced the document to her colleagues. She said the APF condemned occupation, erecting artificial barriers, unlawful detentions, restrictions to free movement, violation of human rights and ethnic discrimination.
“The resolution prepared by the Georgian delegation and adopted by the Parliamentary Assembly is important for our country because the document supports Georgia’s territorial integrity. This is the first case in the APF history when the Georgian issue was discussed individually and supported overwhelmingly. It is a truly historic day for Georgia,” Eliso Bolkvadze told journalists.
Georgia has been represented in the APF as an observer since 2004. It has now joined the organization as an associate member.
The 48th session of the Parliamentary Assembly of La Francophonie (APF) completes work on July 8.
The Parliament of Georgia hosted the session. This year, the APF’s member 42 delegations and approximately 250 guests visited Georgia.
