British PM Says to Raise Georgia During Russia Visit
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 9 Jun.'11 / 15:34

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he would raise Georgia with the Russian leadership if he visits Russia later this year.

PM Cameron told the House of Commons on June 8, that he would “certainly make my views clear on the issue of Georgia, if I visit, and when I visit, Russia later this year.”

He made the remarks after he was asked by Labor MP Gisela Stuart whether he would “remind Russia of the commitment it gave in 2008 to withdraw its troops and stop the occupation in Georgia?”

“I will certainly do that,” PM Cameron responded. “I well remember myself going to Tbilisi when the Georgians were under so much pressure from the Russians, and standing up with them, recognising that Georgia is a country that wants to be a democracy; it wants to be an economic success story; it wants to join NATO; it wants to be able to look west, as well as east; and it wants to have good relations with its neighbour.”

Georgia’s Parliamentary Chairman Davit Bakradze is currently visiting London; he met with speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow.

Russian embassy in London announced late last month that PM Cameron would be visiting Russia in early September – the first visit of British PM to Russia since 2006.
