MOSCOW, February 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and co-chairman of the Geneva discussions on security and stability in Transcaucasia Antti Turunen have discussed the situation on the Abkhazian-Georgian border, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Friday.
“The parties exchanged views on the situation on the border between the Republic of Abkhazia and Georgia, including prospects for resuming the activity of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism and the UN role in stabilizing the situation in the South Caucasus,” the ministry said.
An agreement to create the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism was reached during the 4th round of the Geneva discussions in February 2009. It is designed to make the response to the situation in the field of security timely and adequate, including incidents and their investigation, security of infrastructure facilities, the response to crimes, the delivery of humanitarian aid and other issues that could affect stability and security in the region.
Russian, Abkhazian, Georgian representatives met officials from the UN, the EU and the OSCE one time three weeks in Abkhazia. However, the Abkhazian Foreign Ministry declared head of the EU Monitoring Mission Andrzej Tyszkiewicz as “an undesirable person” on the territory of Abkhazia. Since April 25, 2012 the meetings have stopped. Despite the fact that the mission is led by another person, Toivo Klaar, the parties did not resume the meetings.
