MOSCOW, December 6. /TASS/. NATO’s mounting activities in the Black Sea necessitates bolstering security of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement after a regular round of the International Geneva Discussions on Security and Stability in the South Caucasus, held on December 5-6.
"The need to further strengthen security of Sukhum and Tskhinval has stemmed from the mounting activity of NATO in the Black Sea region, the implementation of the plans for the military use of Georgia by the alliance and the pumping of advanced weapons into that country," the Foreign Ministry said.
The consultations were attended by representatives of Abkhazia, Georgia, South Ossetia, Russia and the United States, and co-chaired by the United Nations, the OSCE and the European Union. The Russian delegation was headed by Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin.
