Georgia’s commitment on nonresumption of fire regime not to be reconsidered
Georgia, Tbilisi, Oct. 8 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
The Georgian government's unilateral commitment on the nonresumption of fire regime will not be reconsidered, candidate for the state minister for reintegration Paata Zakareishvili said today.
He said that the ministry for the reintegration will have close relations with other agencies, especially the Interior Ministry, as the conflicts in Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region are internal conflicts.
Paata Zakareishvili intends to maintain close cooperation with the Georgian Foreign Ministry.
The Russian Foreign Ministry will urge Georgia during the Geneva talks to formalize the agreement on nonresumption of fire regime with Sukhumi and Tskhinvali. Former Georgian authorities have agreed to sign a similar agreement with Russia.
The Georgian Dream coalition leader who won the parliamentary elections Bidzina Ivanishvili has introduced the candidates for ministerial posts in the new Georgian government at the coalition's headquarters in Tbilisi today.
Ivanishvili will take the post of prime minister. He has been working on the consultations on the formation of the new Cabinet of Ministers since October 4.
Military actions were launched in the Georgian region of South Ossetia on Aug.8, 2008. Later 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.
