|Georgian ambassador in Lithuania: There are no frozen conflicts in Caucasus
“There are no frozen conflicts in Ukraine now, there frozen problems,” Georgia’s Ambassador to Lithuania David Aptsiauri announced at the International Summer Academy held at Lithuanian Dubingiai conference center and dedicated to problems of the Baltic and Black Sea cooperation and Russia’s role in “frozen conflicts,” a REGNUM correspondent reports.
“Our position is the following today: we have last much time and many opportunities, but we must go forward,” the ambassador said. “One must give up common stereotypes and have a direct dialog between sides in order to come to a consensus. Georgia has been actively developing, and together with us Abkhazia and Ossetia can reach a lot too.” The Georgian ambassador stressed that “Russia in this situation is undoubtedly a member of a big family, who does not behave properly.”
The International Summer Academy is organized by the Center for Geopolitical Studies (Vilnius) together with the Center for International and Regional Politics (St. Petersburg) under support of the Lithuanian government, Open Society Foundation, the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation, George C. Marshall Foundation and the US embassy in Lithuania.
