Georgia surprised about Armenia’s vote against UN resolution on refugees

Official Tbilisi considers it ‘sad’ that Armenia did not support Georgia during voting for Resolution on Refugees in the UN, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said.

Last week, the UN General Assembly with a 57-13 vote passed a resolution on “Situation of internally displaced persons and refugees from Abkhazia, Georgia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, Georgia” submitted by Tbilisi.

As Kalandadze told a briefing, “Georgia and Armenia have problems under discussion, including the above mentioned issue.”

“We know Armenia’s stand on conflicts which proceeds from its subject matter and which differs from Georgia’s view, and we openly state to our Armenian friends that such position in not admissible for Georgia,” the Deputy Minister said.

She also noted that “the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Georgia before voting in the UN had addressed an official letter to the Armenian MFA head with a request for support.”
