Russia preparing for negotiations on borders with Abkhazia and South Ossetia2009-02-06 12:18
Russia is preparing for negotiations on the border with Abkhazia and south Ossetia, stated Alexander Golovin, the special envoy of the President of Russia on the delimitation and demarcation of borders with the CIS states, Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia in the interview to today's The Izvestia - ITAR TASS.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Golovin reminded that in the course of the negotiations Russia conducted with Georgia before the August events, several areas were not agreed; the sea part of the border was discussed.
"Within the previously one state there was an administrative border between the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic in Abkhazian and South Ossetian directions. Our present-day task is to define it as the state border between the Russian Federation, the Republic of Abkhazia, the republic of South Ossetia", Golovin said. "As for the sea parts, no border between the USSR republics were drawn. It means, it must be established. I predict no problems in negotiations with Abkhazia, including the fact that the position of Russia at the negotiations with Georgia was based on the principles and acts of international law and the global practice in delimitation sphere. In particular, in the issue of sea border we were proceeding from the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea", he explained.
