Georgia, Abkhazia Delegations Meeting in Presence of Observers
The meeting is held today in a format somewhat different from usual, the Abkhazian presidents spokesman Kristian Bzhania told ITAR-TASS.
The meeting is held with the chairmanship of the Abkhazian president s representative in the Gali district, Ruslan Kishmaria, and a representative the Georgia president in the Zugdidi district, with mediation of the commander of the Collective Peacekeeping Forces, Major-General Serge Chaban, and the participation of the UN mission of military observers, Bzhania said.
He described a main goal of the meeting as technical.
It is planned to finally agree upon a list of members of delegations to the coordinating council, the latest meeting of which did not take place just for the reason of a lack of agreement on candidacies of the Georgian side. This work should be done in order misunderstandings do not arise later, Bzhania said,
The four-party meetings in the village of Chuburkhindzhi have been regularly held since 1994 when the Collective Peacekeeping Forces and UN military observers came to the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict area.
The current situation in the area is discussed at the meetings.
