Soviet Georgia has added its voice to calls by Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia urging the Kremlin to revise its planned constitutional amendments due to be approved next week.

The Soviet news agency Tass reported on Thursday that a session of the Georgian parliament had been held to consider the proposed changes, which activists say encroach on the sovereign rights of the Soviet Union's 15 republics."The session unanimously decided to report to the Presidium of the USSR Supreme Soviet that the Supreme Soviet of Georgia deems it necessary to introduce in the draft laws those changes that are demanded by the Georgian public," Tass said.

Tass did not specify the changes demanded by the session, but it appeared that they were on the sovereignty issue.
