Georgia, Tbilisi, October 1/Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
It is hoped that the meetings on incident prevention and response mechanisms against these incidents will be restored in Gali, the new head of the EU Monitoring Mission Toivo Klaar said at the press-conference on Tuesday.
According to him, the mission is ready to resume these meetings at any time, of course in accordance to the political will of all parties.
"There were certain reasons due to which these meetings were not continued, but I hope and believe that both the de facto government of Abkhazia, the Georgian government are ready to resume them," Klaar said.
According to him, the co-chairs of Geneva discussion work on resumption of these meetings in Gali.
It should be stressed that similar meetings were disrupted by the Abkhaz side, which was dissatisfied with the position of the former head of the EU Monitoring Mission Andrzej Tyszkiewicz.
Large scale military action was launched in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August. In response, Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognised republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
