TBILISI, March 28 (Itar-Tass) — Georgia will raise the question about “the access of international observers to the Abkhazian and Tskhinval regions” at the upcoming Geneva discussions on security in Transcaucasia scheduled for Thursday, March 29, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergi Kapanadze said on Wednesday.
According to the minister, the talks “will focus on restoring and reinforcing foreign presence on the occupied territories of the Abkhazian and Tskhinval regions and the deployment of peacekeeping missions there”. “On the first stage we will agree to deploy EU observers or representatives of other international organisations,” Kapanadze said.
He noted, “International observers should conduct monitoring of the humanitarian situation in the Abkhazian and Tskhinval regions and reveal violations of human rights.”
“We will also intend to urge Russia to assume obligations on the non-use of force towards Georgia,” the deputy foreign minister stressed.
The European Union, the U.N. and the OSCE are organisers of the Geneva talks on security in Transcaucasia. The delegations of Georgia, Russia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia take part in them.
The EU Monitoring Mission to Georgia has worked in the country since October 2008. The EUMM monitors the situation on the territories adjacent to the Abkhazian and Tskhinval regions. The EUMM expresses hope that further EU observers will conduct monitoring on the territory of the Abkhazian and Tskhinval regions.
