New round of discussions on Caucasus starts today in Geneva2009-07-01 10:44
Another round of discussion on Caucasus must favor making specific decisions in the conditions of unstable situation and termination of OSCE and UN missions in the region, stated Russian, South Ossetian, and Abkhazian delegations on the threshold of Geneva Talks to be held today - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The participants of the Talks are: delegations of Abkhazia, Georgia, Russia, the USA, South Ossetia, also representatives of the EU, the UN and the OSCE.
Мoscow believes that continuous domestic policy instability in Georgia threatens a new surge of tension in the region.
"Despite the constructive and transparent position of Russia in the favor of preservation of the OSCE and the UN field missions in Caucasus, Western partners and Georgia do everything possible to curtail the work of international monitors in this unquiet region. In these conditions, the necessity to sign binding documents on non-use of force documents between Georgia, the Republic of Abkhazia and the Republic of South Ossetia gains more and more significance," the Foreign Ministry of Russia states.
The South Ossetian delegation also intends to raise the issue of signing document ensuring security guarantees for Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and brings the draft document with them. "The talk will be very hard and principled," said the head of South Ossetian delegation Boris Chochiyev, the South Ossetian president's representative for post-conflict settlement. He added his delegation will raise the question of the three South Ossetian citizens detained by Georgian special services on October 13th 2008 and kept somewhere even now.
The Abkhazian delegation will try to clear out the further format of the Geneva Talks, considering that the OSCE and the UN left the region, said Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia.
