NSC Chief Meets CDM Leader
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 24 Dec.'10 / 16:49

Giga Bokeria, the secretary of the National Security Council (NSC), met with Giorgi Targamadze, the leader of Christian-Democratic Movement (CDM) and of parliamentary minority, on December 24. MP Nika Laliashvili from CDM also attended the meeting.  

“It is important to have contacts and exchange opinions with our political opponents over the issues, which are important for the country,” Bokeria told reporters after the meeting and added that they discussed “future contacts between the Security Council and the parliamentary opposition.”        

Bokeria said that they also focused on Geneva discussions and Georgia’s stance towards Russia’s WTO entry.

Georgia says that it is not against Russia's WTO entry, but under the condition that Moscow makes border crossing points in breakaway Abkhazia and South Ossetia "transparent".

Giorgi Targamadze said that this position should be “as clearer as possible.”

“Our country has one major interest which should not been compromised at the expense of any other proposal and this is related to the principle of inviolability of our country’s territorial integrity and the existence of transparence and control mechanisms of our border crossing points, which… can be established with the participation of both Georgian representatives and international observation and monitoring institutions,” Targamadze told reporters after the meeting.

Since his appointment on the post of the NSC secretary in early December, Bokeria also met with another opposition politician Irakli Alasania, leader of Our Georgia-Free Democrats (OGFD) party.
