The main task of the Geneva discussions remains to draft a document on the non-use of force

December 17-18 in Geneva will be held the 26 round of discussions on security in Transcaucasia. A priority issue at the Geneva discussions for the South Ossetian side remains the signing of an agreement on the non-use of force by Georgia against South Ossetia. According to the RSO Presidential Envoy for post- settlement Murat Dzhioev, the main task of the 26 round of the Geneva discussions is still the issue to draft the legally binding agreements on non-use of force. "As an interim step, our delegation will insist to adopt a joint Declaration of the participants of the discussions on the commitment to the principle of the nonuse of force. This follows from the Medvedev-Sarkozy agreement, signed September 12, 2008,"- said the envoy.
