Georgia hopes for the success of further Geneva talks
According to the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Sergi Kapanadze, the document, developed by the co-chairs of the Geneva talks on the prevention of tension in the Caucasus, includes a number of proposals on how to reach an agreement, under which all parties would agree to sign an agreement on the nonuse of force. According to Trend, Kapanadze told this to the journalists after the 18th meeting in Geneva.
"We hope that at the next round Russia will be able to design such a document and confirm, that it will not use force against Georgia", Kapanadze said. He said that today such an obligation is needed on the part of Moscow.
Kapanadze recalled the recent statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that Russia is concerned about the dynamics of the rapprochement between Georgia and NATO. In addition, Kapanadze remembered the last speech of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev, who said that Georgia at its territory is training people "to carry out terrorist acts in Russia". Kapanadze called such statements of Moscow "totally unfounded" and "very disturbing".
