By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

The voting on the draft resolution 'On the status of internally displaced persons and refugees from Abkhazia, Georgia and the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, Georgia' will be held at the UN General Assembly's session on June 5.

The Georgian side relies on the international organizations in terms of the peaceful implementation of this process, Georgian Foreign Ministry told Trend.

The resolution was initiated in 2008. Since then, Georgia has submitted it to the UN General Assembly each year.

Large scale military action was launched between Georgia and Russia in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008.

Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August.

In response, Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognized republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
