TBILISI, November 1 (Itar-Tass) - Georgia’s delegation does not rule out that progress may be achieved at the November 5-6 round of the Geneva discussions on security in the South Caucasus, special envoy for relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze said.
Abazhidze said he “can’t see into the results of the discussions. I won’t guess. Our delegation is ready for positive moments.”
The upcoming Geneva discussions “will focus on the August 2008 events - security and humanitarian problems and etc”, the Georgian special envoy said.
On October 15, Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze said, “Unfortunately, the previous rounds of the Geneva discussions did not yield any concrete results. That is why it will be a lie if I say I’m optimistic about the upcoming round. Maybe, there will be any progress although I’ve talked about it very cautiously.”
The Geneva talks on security in the South Caucasus are being held since October 2008 under the auspices of the EU, the U.N. and the OSCE with the participation of the delegation of Georgia, Russia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
The new Georgian government led by Bidzina Ivanishvili said, “The Geneva discussions are an important format. Tbilisi is committed to this process.”
