GENEVA, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russia supports the willingness of two young South Caucasian countries, Abkhazia and South Ossetia, to delimitate their borders with their former metropolitan country, Georgia, a high-rank Russian diplomat said here upon the completion of the 18th round of discussions on stability and security in South Caucasus.
The consultations bring together the delegations of the Republic of Abkhazia, the Republic of South Ossetia, Georgia, Russia, and the U.S. They are held under the auspices of the UN, the EU and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe /OSCE/.
The issue of delimitation of the borders was raised by the Abkhazian and South Ossetian delegations, said the high-ranking Russian diplomat, Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karassin.
“The logic standing behind the proposal is that incidents and all sorts of serious misunderstandings are possible in the absence of clearly delimitated borders,” he said. “This is happening already, and especially in Abkhazia’s Gal district.”
“That’s why the importance of delimitation is only too obvious and the sides should consider the ways of demarcating the borderline,” Karassin said.
“For Russia, the issue has special importance, as our border guards are deployed there, and that’s why we support the insistence of our /Abkhazian and South Ossetian counterparts/ that the delimitation should take place in reality,” he said.
“This should be done under any circumstances because the only alternative to the delimitation is conflicts,” Karassin indicated.
