Lasha Darsalia provides diplomats with information about recent situation along occupation line

The Deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia met with representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia.

Lasha Darsalia briefed the representatives of the diplomatic corps on the escalating security, humanitarian and human rights situation in Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions, as well as along the occupation line. He provided European partners with detailed information on ongoing provocations on the ground, including erection of barbed wire fences, various artificial barriers, and so-called “block posts” along the occupation line.

The Deputy Minister paid a special attention to the humanitarian crisis created in occupied Akhalgori due to the closure of the so-called crossing points and the restriction of free movement of the local population for months.
