The fifth round of Geneva Talks starts today

2009-05-18 10:38

The fifth round of consultations on settlement and stabilization of situation in Caucasus starts today in Geneva - ITAR TASS.


According to the settled practice, today separate closed meetings of delegations will be held, and tomorrow the joint sitting of all the participants is expected.

The consultations are held under the aegis of the UN, the EU and the OSCE, with participation of delegations of Russia, Georgia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and the USA; since October 2008 - after the August events in South Ossetia and followed recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by Russia.

The first three rounds (in October, November and December 2008) brought no significant results, but the Georgian delegation agreed to negotiate with representatives of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, though in Tbilisi they are called "breakaway regions", and their governments - "separatist" ones.

In the course of the fourth round (February 17th -18th ) important agreements on joint incident prevention mechanisms were reached, and it was an important step on the way to stabilization. Diplomatic circles note that the present-day round of consultations may be impeded in connection with the complicated domestic situation in Georgia, where opposition persistently strives for President Saakashvili's resignation.
