Representatives of Abkhazia, staying in Geneva, will participate in the discussion. According to Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia, they are consulting with the south Ossetian side. " As the UN Secretary General's report is of a compromise nature, and there is no allusions to Abkhazia's being a part of Georgia, and the document also proposes a new formulation concerning the further activities of the UN mission in republic, we believe that there is no obstacles for participation of the republic's representatives in the Geneva meeting".

Let us remind that on Saturday 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.
