TBILISI (Itar-Tass)–Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze welcomed the idea of creating an interparliamentary assembly of the Caucasus proposed by Georgian parliament speaker Zurab Zhvania last week.

In his traditional radio address on Monday–Shevardnadze said this idea follows up on the Peaceful Caucasus initiative and decisions adopted by the leaders of Russia–Georgia–Azerbaijan–Armenia and North Caucasus regions and republics at their meeting in Kislovodsk in 1996.

Shevardnadze noted that the Caucasus dialogue provides a framework for establishing a regional organization with the participation of Armenia–Azerbaijan–Georgia and Russia (as one of the key members)–as well as North Caucasus regions and republics.
