MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. A next round of Geneva discussions on security and stability in Transcaucasia is scheduled for mid-December, Russian Foreign Ministry sources said on Wednesday after consultations in Geneva on October 7-8.
Participants in discussions welcomed a growing stability on the Abkhazian and South Ossetian borders with Georgia, a decline in tension and emotional rhetoric from the sides, a tendency towards normalization of the situation in border regions, the ministry said.
