NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary-General visits the village of Odzisi, near the occupation line

NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs and Security Policy and the newly-appointed Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia Javier Colomina visited the village of Odzisi, near the occupation line.

Lasha Darsalia, the First Deputy Foreign Minister, introduced the guest with the situation across the occupied territories.

“I received an ample explanation about the situation here, humanitarian effects of the situation on the local population, healthcare, trade, and families that are divided by the administrative border. It is of special concern for NATO the buildup of fences that is taking place since it is clear that Russia is not respecting the international agreements in that sense”, - said Javier Colomina.

He underlined the significance of work carried out by the Incidents Prevention of Response Mechanisms (IPRM) and the European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM), as well as the Geneva International Discussions (GID).

“We need to support all efforts in resolving the situation”, - added NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary-General.
