Georgia, Tbilisi, July 3/ corr. Trend / N. Kirtzkhalia
Russia's accusations about expansion of Georgian military contingent in territories adjustment to Abkhazia and South Ossetia counteract the reality, according to the Georgian Foreign Ministry's statement on the results of the sixth round of Geneva negotiations.
"Hans Jorg Haber stated at the Geneva meeting that Georgia fulfills conscientiously its obligations before the European Union (EU) mission. Russia's accusations about expansion of the Georgian military contingent in territory adjacent to Abkhazia and South Ossetia counteract the reality," the statement said.
Georgia regarded next round of talks on security and stability in Caucasus held in Geneva on July 2 in Geneva as effective. A meeting of the working group on incident prevention mechanisms succeeded to achieve agreement on Abkhazia. These mechanisms will become effective in Qali from July 14, the document said.
Georgia raised placement of international peacekeeping and police forces in the territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, according to the Ministry's statement.
The Georgian delegation presented a draft agreement on non-use of force, as well as de-occupation of the country, fulfillment of all items of the ceasefire agreement dated Aug. 12, 2008 and by-stage placement of international peacekeeping and police forces in the territory of the country.
"Unfortunately, the Russian representatives turned out unprepared to discuss seriously these proposals with Georgia, Georgian Foreign Ministry stated. Nevertheless, we hope Russia to show more serious approach to discussing the document by the next round of talks.
