'The Ganmukhuri incident has demonstrated how serious the problem of conflict resolution and peacekeeping forces are' parliament speaker Nino Burjanadze said at the meeting with the Ministers of Defense, Interior Affairs, Foreign Affairs and the leaders of the ruling party.

Burjanadze said it was vivid that there are groups who aim at causing instability in Georgia, but the criticizing peacekeepers was not a fixed idea of Georgian government, they showed themselves how partial they were, how they arranged provocations and supported separatist regimes.

'Our task is to maintain peace and stability. Their provocations are useless and they should better quit arranging them,' Burjanadze said.

The speaker summoned the law enforcer ministers to listen detailed information about the Ganmukhuri incident and their opinion how the situation would develop afterwards.
