2012-03-30 12:40

Georgian delegation has rejected Russia's draft on on non-use of force in Transcaucasia at the Geneva talks on Transcaucasia.


As reported by the ITAR-TASS, commenting the outcome of the 19th round of discussions on security and stability in the Caucasus, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin stated that Georgian delegation had rejected Russia's draft on on non-use of force in Transcaucasia. These consultations are held under the auspices of the UN, the EU and the OSCE. The talks are attended by delegations of the Republic of Abkhazia, Georgia, Russia, USA, and Republic of South Ossetia.

"Our initiative was blocked by Georgian officials", he said. In the draft statement, the participants of the Geneva discussions welcomed the statement on non-use of force, made by the Abkhaz, Georgian and South Ossetian parties in late 2010. The document also called on to settle all disputes arising in the region through peaceful negotiations.

According to Karasin, "during the discussions the representatives of the Georgian delegation demanded Russia to make unilateral statement on non-use of force". Deputy Foreign Minister noted that Moscow could not do that for reasons of principle, because "it does not consider itself a party to the conflict", the edition reported.
