Moscow’s illegal statements on the so-called delimitation-demarcation of the occupation line are completely unacceptable - Foreign Ministry

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement regarding the 54th round of the Geneva International Discussions.

“During the talks, the Georgian delegation strongly emphasized the recent steps taken by Moscow towards the de facto annexation of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region, including the implementation of a “program” for the creation of a single socio-economic space, the signing of the so-called dual citizenship agreement, annexation of a part of the village of Aibga and attempted unilateral delimitation-demarcation of the section of the occupied territories of the Russian-Georgian state border.

One of the main topics of discussion was Russia’s non-fulfillment of the EU-brokered ceasefire agreement of 12 August 2008: the widespread militarization of the occupied territories, illegal military exercises and violations of Georgian airspace, as well as barbed wire fences and other artificial barricades erected by the Russian Federal Security Service soldiers on the occupation line.

According to the Georgian representatives, Moscow’s illegal statements on the so-called delimitation-demarcation of the occupation line are completely unacceptable. The only solution to the issue can be de-occupation of Georgian territories. During the discussions, significant attention was paid to the process of creeping occupation near the village of Chorchana, which creates a danger of escalation of the situation on the ground”, - reads the statement.
