A meeting with Geneva Co-Chairmen was held in Tskhinval

A meeting of Geneva talks Co-Chairmen with Post-Conflict Settlement Special Representative was held in Tskhinval. At the meeting, the South Ossetian side was presented with Foreign Minister Murat Djioev, HR Commissioner David Sanakoev, State Advisor Kosta Kochiev, Deputy Foreign Minister Alan Pliev, and Assistant to Post-Conflict Settlement Special Representative Merab Chigoev. The international delegation was headed by the EU Special Representative (SR) Pierre Morel. OSCE and UN representatives were also part to the delegation.
"It turned out that we usually meet close to next round of Geneva talks. Today, it is a working meeting and the visit program includes a trip to Leningori district", he said.
Chochiev had pointed to a number of shortcomings in the work of international organizations and stressed that "the Geneva talks took on a populist character, since the achieved agreements are recalled only right before the next round of the talks or close to your visit".

Boris Chochiev: “The Geneva Talks Co-Chairmen are taking a pro-Georgian stand"

"The Co-Chairmen in Geneva Talks on Security in the Caucasus representing EU, OSCE and UN are taking a pro-Georgian position", stated the Special Representative for Post-Conflict Settlement Boris Chochiev after the meeting with the Geneva Co-Chairmen.
"The Co-Chairmen are non-objective, biased and I would say, pro-Georgian. We do not see any real evaluation of the situation. They do everything to conceal the negative tendencies obvious with Georgia. With doing so, they never express their own viewpoints. In particular, the EUMM observers located in the areas adjacent to South Ossetia are pursuing their goal to conceal all facts of outrage in their area of responsibility. They do not notice 35 illegal checkpoints deployed by the Georgian side, as well as daily provocations taking place there", said Chochiev.
