French President Nicolas Sarkozy is travelling to Moscow and Tbilisi to discuss European Union plans for an end to the conflict between Russia and Georgia over the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Mr Sarkozy will press, on behalf of the EU, for the formation of a European observer mission in Georgia. He also wants to reach agreement about the withdrawal of Russian troops from the area and insist on international talks about the future of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
He will be accompanied by the chairman of the European Commission, José Manuel Durão Barroso, and EU foreign representative Javier Solana. The trio will first meet Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow, then travel on to Tbilisi for talks with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili.
