Ashton welcomed Saakashvili's non-use of force
Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission, made the following statement:
“I welcome the non-use of force commitment announced by the Georgian President Saakashvili during his speech made on 23 November before the European Parliament in Strasbourg. I see it as a constructive step and positive contribution to ongoing efforts towards a peaceful and lasting solution to the conflict.
In this regard, I underline the importance of the Geneva International Discussions, where the issue of non-use of force is at the centre of the agenda.
We are looking forward to further steps, as announced by President Saakashvili in his speech, and stand ready to continue the active engagement of the EU in the conflict resolution efforts in Georgia.”
