Nino Kalandadze: “Georgia Disagrees with Part of US State Department Report”

“Georgia’s depiction is rather progressive compared to those of other states,” – states the deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Nino Kalandadze.

According to her, the report depicts the progress taking place in Georgia for the recent years. However, according to the deputy Minister, Georgia disagrees with part of the report.

“Georgia welcomes every qualified report no matter what issues they regard. This report depicts the progress made in Georgia and welcomes the progress made for the recent years,” – stated Kalandadze. She states that criticism of the report is also acceptable.

According to the explanation of the deputy Minister, the most important thing is that it clearly emphasizes the situation in the occupied territories and the position of USA and Georgia on this issue is the same.

“It regards violation of human rights in the occupied territories and that involvement of international monitors in the occupied territories must be strengthened”, - Nino Kalandadze said.

According to her, the US State Department Reports on other countries are lot more critical.

U.S. Department of State published 2010 Human Rights Report.
The main human rights abuses reported during the year included abuse of prisoners and detainees, poor prison conditions, and arbitrary arrest and detention, violations of the rights of internally displaced persons (IDPs), senior level corruption in the government, violation of rights of ethnic Georgian in the occupied territories.
