MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. The Geneva discussions on Transcaucasia will be held in Geneva on December 9-10, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Thursday.
“The co-chairmen of the Geneva discussions will meet in Moscow next week. We’re planning to discuss what we have to talk about. They should visit the region and go to Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia,” he said.
“We’ll meet in Geneva on December 9-10. We’re preparing for this meeting,” Karasin said.
The Geneva discussions on security in Transcaucasia have been held for more than five years in compliance with the agreements reached by the Russian and French presidents after the August 2008 events when Georgia provoked the assault by attacking South Ossetia and forced Russia to deploy troops in the region. Then Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
