The regular meeting of the head of Information-Analytical department of Georgian Interior Ministry David Sujashvili with the representatives of European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia was held at the Interior Ministry of Georgia.
The situation relating to Georgia's separatist regions was discussed during the meeting, the Georgian Interior Ministry told Trend on Tuesday.
During the meeting, representatives of the Georgian Interior Ministry once again highlighted the role of the EU Monitoring Mission in the process of preserving stability and peace in the areas adjacent to the separatist regions of Georgia.
Large scale military action was launched in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced the two unrecognised republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
