KIEV, June 19 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian Foreign Minister, OSCE Chairman in Office Leonid Kozhara visited Georgia to discuss the pace of the Geneva talks on security and stability in Transcaucasia, Foreign Ministry deputy spokesman Vasil Zvarych told journalists on Wednesday.
“The OSCE chairman in office expressed concern over installing barriers by South Ossetia along the administrative line that creates serious obstacles for people’s free movement,” Zvarych said.
“Leonid Kozhara called for discussing this issue within the existing international mechanisms in order to settle the disagreements by peace talks,” the Ukrainian diplomat said.
Kozhara’s visit preceded a series of trips of his special representative for conflict resolution Andrei Deshchitsa.
At the end of May he visited the Russian capital and then Georgia. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reported that Deshchitsa took part in the regular session within the Incident Prevention and Reaction Mechanism with the participation of the Georgian, South Ossetian and Abkhazian delegations.
