Abkhazia not satisfied with Geneva discussions results
SUKHUM -- The Abkhaz side is disappointed over the results of the tenth round of international discussions on security in Transcaucasia, the President of Abkhazia’s envoy to Geneva discussions Vyacheslav Chirikba said.
According to him “both the Abkhaz and South Ossetian delegations are not satisfied with the fact that during the discussions we failed to proceed to a substantial discussion of an agreement on the non-use of force”. “We expressed concern about delay with working out a document on the non-use of force and released a joint statement. The Russian delegation proposed a compromise draft document which was supported by the South Ossetian and Abkhaz parties, but we failed to start discussing it because of Georgia’s and Geneva process moderators’ position”, Chirikba said.
“Georgia’s representatives refuse to discuss a draft agreement on the non-use of force and try to bring up for discussion the so-called draft of “deoccupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia” what is unacceptable for us”, Chirikba said. According to him “in turn the UN, the EU and OSCE representatives chairing the discussions, follow the tastes of the Georgian side and avoid putting a substantial discussion of the draft agreement on the agenda in every way possible". "They maneuver and try to save the Geneva process, but it’s rather questionable for how long they will succeed”, the President of Abkhazia’s representative to the international discussions on security in Transcaucasia Vyacheslav Chirikba added.
