Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 22 Sep.'11 / 02:55

In a speech in New York to the UN General Assembly on September 21, Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves said that while focusing on pertinent issue of the present "we must not shy away from addressing unresolved issues of the recent past" and along with Afghanistan he raised Georgia, saying that it "is another country that continues to require our attention."

"The 2008 war ended with the violation of Georgian territorial integrity, a fundamental violation of international law that  remains unresolved to this day," said Estonian President, who visited Georgia in early July.

"The fundamental principles of international law must be followed by all members of the international community, not just the small, who have no other recourse," he said.

President Ilves also said that the international community should continue to support Geneva talks, launched after the August, 2008 war; the next, seventeenth . round of the Geneva talks is scheduled for October 4.

He said that involvement of the UN, which along with EU and OSCE acts as a co-chair of the talks, "is of utmost importance and must continue in the future."
