Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept 6 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
Meeting of the coordination mechanism to address the issue of missing persons during the armed conflict in August 2008 will be held on September 6 on the administrative border of South Ossetia and Georgia, in Ergneti.
The mechanism, in the frame of which the meeting is held, suggests that the search of the missing people is carried out, regardless of nationality and the citizenship of the missing.
It is the sixth meeting of the Coordination Mechanism.
Military actions were launched in the Georgian territory, South Ossetia on Aug.8 in 2008. Later the Russian troops occupied the city of Tskhinvali and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognised the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced the two unrecognised republics as occupied territories.
