The 108th Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) was held today in Ergneti, under the co-facilitation of Ambassador Marek Szczygieł, Head of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia (EUMM) and Ambassador Viorel Moşanu, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office for the South Caucasus.

According to the State Security Service of Georgia (SSSG), during the meeting Tbilisi stressed the need of “unconditional and immediate release” of Georgian citizens arbitrarily detained by Russian occupying forces.

Tbilisi also raised the issue of a Georgian police post in the Chorchana-Tsnelisi area, stressing the post will continue its operation “as usual”.

“The participants discussed incidents and illegal actions across the dividing line, including “borderization”, which significantly harms the security environment, poses a threat to the security of local population and restricts free movement across the dividing line”, - said Irakli Antadze, the deputy director of the information security analytical department of the SSSG.

The participants agreed to convene the next regular meeting on 10 November 2022.
