According to Chochiev, "it was stated that we would appreciate and accept humanitarian assistance if it were sent directly to South Ossetia without politicizing the problem".
He also mentioned that "all international agencies should send their representatives to South Ossetia to discuss the mechanisms for delivery of humanitarian assistance".
Boris Chochiev stressed that "the SO delegation to Geneva talks had also met with the Special Representative of OSCE Chairmanship Ambassador Christopoulos.

"On 19 February, we will be having a meeting at OSCE HQ in Vienna with a more in-depth discussion".
