WASHINGTON, February 13, 3:12 /ITAR-TASS/. Georgia thinks it important to continue consultations on security and stability in the Caucasus in the format of Geneva negotiations, Georgian State Minister for Reconciliation and Civic Equality Paat Zakareishvili, who is currently on a visit to the United States, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The Geneva format is acceptable for us and it will not be changed,” he said.
The Ministry for Reconciliation and Civic Equality, the former Ministry for Reconciliation, got its present name in 2014 and this change of name, according to Zakareishvili, reflected the approach of the current Georgian government to the settlement of conflicts with Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Consultations on security and stability in the Caucasus have been held for more than five years on the basis of agreements reached by president of Russia and France after the August 2008 tragic developments in South Ossetia. Consultations held under the auspices of the United Nations, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) involve delegations from Abkhazia, Georgia, Russia, the United States, and South Ossetia. The next round is planned for March 25-26, 2014.
