Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct.14 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
The next round of Geneva talks will start Oct.14. The main issues on the agenda with representatives from Georgia, Russia, Sukhumi, Tskhinvali, UN and EU will be refugees' return to their homes and missing persons' fate.
The meeting also will discuss the humanitarian issues and security. An agreement on nonuse of force will also be discussed. The Georgian side will focus on the problems of refugees.
According to the head of the Georgian delegation, the First Deputy Foreign Minister Giga Bokeria, the Georgian side's main requirement at the Geneva talks will be refugees' return. "This is a fundamental issue that makes Georgia anxious," he stressed.
"The Georgian side's position remains unchanged. Our main goal is to develop a new concept of security and return of refugees to the occupied territories," Bokeria said.
Meanwhile, the Russian side will once again raise the issue of concluding a non-aggression agreement between Tbilisi, Sukhumi and Tskhinvali.
Tbilisi claims that it is ready to sign non-aggression agreement only with Russia, as a participant of the conflict.
The Georgian side will also demand to free 12 Georgians detained in the Tskhinvali prison for illegally crossing the so-called Georgian-South Ossetian border.
