On 23rd of November, 2020 the UN General Assembly discussed the cooperation of the United Nations with multiple regional organizations. At the meeting, Georgia disassociated itself from consensus on the UNGA Resolution entitled “Cooperation between the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Independent States”. In her explanatory statement, Deputy Permanent Representative of Georgia, Elene Agladze, clarified that Georgia cannot support the Resolution welcoming the efforts of the CIS, as its very founding member – the Russian Federation – continues to violate territorial integrity and sovereignty of its neighboring states, in flagrant disregard of the UN Charter.
During the meeting the UN General Assembly adopted by consensus the Resolution on “Cooperation between the United Nations and the Organization for Democracy and Economic Development – GUAM”. Georgia was one of the main sponsors of the above Resolution.
At the same meeting Georgia joined consensus on the Resolution on the “Cooperation between the United Nations and the Black Sea Economic Cooperation”, noting the importance of its work in advancing sustainable development on the regional level. However, Georgia disassociated itself from Operative Paragraph 9 of the above Resolution, since it contained false information presented by one Member State and contravened the position of BSEC PERMIS.
