Peacemakers must have a good reputation

After taking part in anti-war protest demonstration in Tbilisi, President Victor Yushchenko talked to Ukrainian and foreign media, according to the President`s press-office.

In the interview President expressed assurance that the plan of South Ossetia conflict settlement would be agreed upon soon.

“The most important thing we see is that the process of situation normalization has begun”, - he said.

Speaking about scheduled meeting of the leaders in Tbilisi Presiden stressed that its aim is forming basis for talks with regard to all the conditions and positions of the sides.  “It is clear that for Georgia a question of territorial integrity is very topical”, - he added.

Another question important for Georgia, as President Yushchenko noted, is participation of peacemakers with good reputation in the process of regulation of the conflict.

“It is clear that the peacekeepers who started shooting people do not deserve confidence. Today we must internationalize the peacemaking format and to make it open for other countries … I am sure that such countries as Ukraine could send their peacemakers within the framework of international mandate to demonstrate clear-cut guarantees of the obligations that may appear in the nearest future”, - he said.
