Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov. 9 / Trend , N.Kirtskhalia /
The Georgian Foreign Ministry expressed protest in connection with the negotiations between Moscow and Sukhumi on the delimitation of the "Russian-Abkhaz state border".
"The media outlets reported that Sukhumi (Abkhazia, Georgia) hosted on Nov.8 the third meeting between the representatives of Russia and the occupation regime in Abkhazia. The sides mulled the so-called 'question of delimitation of state borders and demarcation of maritime spaces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Abkhazia," the ministry's statement reads.
In this regard, the Georgian Foreign Ministry states that the so-called negotiations are illegal from the international-legal point of view and the agreements reached will have no legal effect. The only party, with which it is possible to negotiate the delimitation and demarcation of the state borders of Georgia, is the central government of Georgia, the statement reads.
Military actions were launched in the Georgian territory, South Ossetia on Aug.8 in 2008.
Later the Russian troops occupied the Tskhinvali city and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced two unrecognized republics as the occupied territories.
