Ergneti as small Geneva

2009-04-24 22:36

5/1/2/2512.jpegSouth Ossetian, Georgian, Russian, OSCE and EU representatives came to Ergneti village of Georgia in order to discuss the mechanism of incident prevention coordinated at the latest round of Geneva talks.


"At this meeting we seek to establish closer contacts between the sides in order to settle the situation in South Caucasus, - ITAR-TASS quotes Sergey Antonov, deputy commander-in-chief of Russian Land Forces. - We are going to discuss regular information exchange on the situation in the zone adjacent to the South Ossetian-Georgian border, provide for this zone's monitoring and organization of briefings in follow-up of the monitoring activities, prompt resolution of disputes, exchange of contacts between Russian and EU representatives in order to establish close working ties between the EU and the command of the Russian military contingent in South Ossetia".

According to Imedi TV the Georgian delegation is led by the head of Interior Ministry analytical department Shota Utiashvili who recently stated he was not expecting "anything special" from the meeting, Trend IA reports. The laconic "power official" was supported by Temur Yakobashvili, State Minister for Reintegration. According to his status he was more detailed in his speculations: "It is difficult to say what will happen and in what way beforehand", - GHN quotes. - Time will show if this day will be the start of incident prevention mechanisms implementation. Now it is important to make them work".

Five delegates from Tskhinval set clear hopes on the multilateral meeting. According to Rosbalt the Ossetian side will try to have guarantees of the Georgians that a new war won't be started, solve the problem of return of kidnapped Ossetians and present their vision and their evaluations of the situation in the region to the EU representatives.

Well, the intention seems to be good and business-like. For now the officials of both sides demonstrate their openness and what is important - interest in termination of near-border squabbles. As the recent events show there will be a lot of things to discuss at the Ergneti meeting. The main thing is not to let emotions win. As in the morning the head of South Ossetian Interior Ministry Valery Valiev reported on the night shooting in the direction of a South Ossetian village from the Georgian side.

"The automatic arms - subguns and machine guns - were used for shooting in the direction of Otrev village of Tskhinval district at 22.30 with fire ceased approximately at midnight", - RIA Novosti quotes.
