Deputy FM on U.S. Human Rights Report on Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 11 Apr.'11 / 21:58

The Georgian government disagrees with some parts of the U.S. Department of State's human rights report on Georgia, but the document in overall is "important" and "worth of attention," Nino Kalandadze, the Georgian deputy foreign minister, said on April 11.
"I would not agree that there is only a criticism," she said at a news conference when asked to comment on "quite critical" report . "The report also reflects and welcomes the progress achieved by Georgia last year." 

"At the same time criticism is also acceptable for us. Most of the issues raised [in the report] are regularly discussed in frames of our cooperation [with the U.S.]."

"From our point of view the most important about this report is that it very clearly and unequivocally describes situation in the occupied territories. Our positions fully coincide about the cases of violation of human rights in the occupied territories," she said.

"There are parts of the report, which we do not agree," Kalandadze said.

She also said that the U.S. Department of State's human rights report on Georgia was much more positive than those on many other countries.
