Abkhazia: Talks Seek Binding Non-Aggression Agreement

Abkhaz negotiators, and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, hope that the upcoming consultations will have as their main objective the conclusion of a long-awaited accord which will prevent Georgia from using force against Sohkum.

Below is an article published by The Voice of Russia:

The main task of the Geneva talks on the Caucasus is to reach a legally binding agreement on the non-use of force by Georgia against South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

This was a statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry in connection with the upcoming October 14th round of consultations.

The parties will discuss measures to prevent conflicts on the Georgian border with the two separated republics.

International discussions in Geneva were initiated after the August 2008 crisis, when Georgia attacked South Ossetia and threatened Abkhazia.

Russia sent troops into South Ossetia and forced the aggressors to peace.
