The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia called the international society to influence the position of Russia that sees the discussion in Geneva impossible without delegations of Abkhasia and South Ossetia enjoying full rights, informs Interfax, alluding to the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement.


"Georgia calls to keep Russia from wrecking the negotiations and undertake measures to stop the attempts to legalize the change of internationally accepted Georgian borders", - according to the statement issued in Tbilisi on Thursday.

"Georgia welcomes the beginning of the Genovese process, and entirely accepts the coordinated format of negotiations, in accordance to which the official participants of the negotiations are sovereign states - Georgia, the RF and the USA, as well as the EU, CISAC and the UN", - stated in the document.

But the Foreign Ministry of Georgia underlined that representatives of Abkhasia and South Ossetia can participate in the Genovese negotiations only as informal working groups that must comprise "legitimate representatives of Georgian citizens banished from these regions".

The Georgian Foreign Ministry accused Russia of obstructing the beginning of the Genovese process. Earlier this week Grigol Vashadze, the Foreign Minister deputy claimed that Tbilisi would participate in Genovese discussions only providing the absence of Abkhasian and Georgian delegations.

""Georgia will take part in Genevese format only if none of the so called delegations of Abkhasia or South Ossetia participate. Russians may have everyone they wish in their delegation as experts".

In the same day Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Affairs Minister, announced: "If Georgia really refuses to participate in Genevean discussion providing the representatives of Abkhasia and South Ossetia would, it's regrettable. It's a defiance to all who really care for security of this region".
