According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the main theme of the security group is traditionally to develop reliable guarantees of non-use of force by Georgia against neighboring states;
it will continue the consideration of draft documents in this sphere, including the Russian initiative on adopting a joint declaration of all participants of the Geneva discussions on the non-use of force. Furthermore, at the Geneva meeting will be reviewed the activities of the Mechanisms for preventing and responding to incidents at the South Ossetian- Georgian and Georgian - Abkhazian border.
The humanitarian group will continue discussions on the issues of interest to the participants, including the exchange of detained persons in the border areas and the search for the missing persons.
The Geneva discussions are held since October 2008 after the armed aggression of Georgia against South Ossetia. They involve representatives of the Republic of South Ossetia, the Republic of Abkhazia, the Russian Federation, Georgia, United States of America, as well as the UN, OSCE and EU.
