Bemerkungen zum 'armen. Genozid' löst Zwischenfall im Parlament aus
As part of routine statements, usually made by MPs during sessions on Tuesdays, MP Jondi Bagaturia from the opposition parliamentary faction, Unity for Justice, took the floor from the Parliament’s rostrum to speak of various issues and one of the issues he raised was last year’s decision by the Georgian Parliament to recognize 19th century massacre and deportations of Circassians by the Tsarist Russia in the northwest Caucasus as genocide. He recalled this decision and criticized it in the context of requests from Georgia’s Armenian community to recognize the massacre of Armenians in Ottoman Empire as genocide – such appeals are usually made almost every year in April, when the anniversary of those tragic events are marked.
 “When you recognized Circassians’ genocide just for the purpose of a one-day PR show, we [warned] you not to do that, because we would have nothing to tell to our Armenian citizens. I wonder what are you going to tell these people now? These are our citizens; these are our compatriots; you [referring to ruling party MPs] should bear responsibility for that,” MP Bagaturia said. ...

Ivanishvili's politische Partei startet mit Eröffnungskongress in Tbilisi
Parteiname: "ქართული ოცნება – დემოკრატიული საქართველოს“ - Georgischer Traum - Demokratisches Georgien" - "Georgian Dream–Democratic Georgia"
Ivanishvili, who presented core team of his party in February, has no right to personally found or chair a political party in Georgia as he is a French citizen and planned constitutional amendment, granting him political rights without having a Georgian passport, has yet to be passed by the Parliament.
For that reason the party elected as its interim, nominal chairperson Manana Kobakhidze, a lawyer who previously served as a chair of the Tbilisi-based human rights advocacy organization Article 42 of the Constitution. ...

Präsident Saakashvili: 'Lasst uns Lavrov als Touristvertriebsmann rekrutieren, er wirbt gut für Georgien'
By advising its citizens not to travel to Georgia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is in fact advertising Georgia and deserves “a tourist agent’s salary” from Tbilisi, President Saakashvili said on April 19.
“Hotels are full of Russian tourists. More Lavrov advises [Russians] not to travel to Georgia, the more [Russians] are arriving. Maybe we should recruit Lavrov as a tourist agent, shouldn’t we?” Saakashvili told Education Minister Dimitri Shashkin jokingly when visiting a new vocational school in Kobuleti on April 19. “Planes are packed by Russians; they all are aware of Lavrov’s statements, but they are coming into Georgia with even more pleasure. So give Lavrov a travel agent’s salary; he is making a good advertisement for Georgia.” ...

NATO-Gesandter Appathurai: Georgien rückt näher an NATO heran, gleich was andere Parteien sagen
Russia's leadership "can say what it wants", but it's NATO allies which decide on membership and "step-by-step" Georgia is getting closer to the Alliance "regardless of what other parties might say," James Appathurai, NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia, said.
The NATO "took a decision in Bucharest [in 2008] that Georgia will become a NATO member if it still wants to and when it meets the standards of course," he said in an interview with the Georgian news magazine Tabula. "[Georgia] still wants to and based on popular support in Georgia I expect that to stay the same and Georgia is working to meet the standards. We have not changed our view. We continue to work towards that step when Georgia will become a NATO member and Georgia is taking the steps as well and in fact, as the Secretary General said, we are getting closer together." ...
