Yesterday Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary General, presented the Un Security Council a report on the security in the Caucasus region. The indication of Abkhazia's belonging to Georgia is not mentioned in the title - for the first time, ITAR TASS reports.


The source in the Permanent Representative office of Russia to the UN confirmed the fact of reception of the "report of the Secretary General, presented in accordance with the Resolutions of the Security Council 1808, 1839 and 1866". "The source noted the considerable difference of the reports: the present-day one and the one issued in February, and mentioned that the regulations of the new report are under analysis, therefore the contents are not commented.

Let us remind that the absence of the report caused suspension of the Geneva Talks. Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia, stated that his country would not participate in the 5th round of the consultations of the situation in Caucasus until the UN Secretary General's report appears. He added that participation of Abkahzia in the discussions would also depend on the the extent the report would "reflect the existing reality".

On Monday Sergey Lavrov, the Foreign Minister of Russia, also announced of suspension of Russia's participation in the Geneva Talks. He called that the absence of the report the violation of the initial conditions, which were to provide the timely work of the 5th round. The Russian delegation proposed to have a pause to May 19th , being informed that the report must appear at night.

The report is planned to be discussed at the UNSC sitting on May 27th .
