Adoption of a document on the non-use of force is necessary against the background of building up the military potential of Georgia: Delegation of South Ossetia


The South Ossetian delegation at the Geneva discussions on security in Transcaucasia once again noted the need to develop a legally binding document designed to guarantee the security of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Georgia's non-use of force or threat of force, the press service of the office of the Republic’s Plenipotentiary Envoy for post-conflict settlement told the “Res” news agency.

“The participants in the discussion noted that such a document could become the basis for maintaining stability and strengthening the existing security structure in the region. The urgency of the adoption of such a document is increasing even more against the background of the continuing build-up of Georgia's military potential and the expansion of the activity of the North Atlantic Alliance in the region. The co-chairs of the Geneva Discussions informed the participants about the conceptual developments on the new draft document, which was promised to be presented at the next round,” the press service said.

They noted that while discussing the issues of stability and security in the region of the South Ossetian-Georgian state border, the participants of the meeting noted the absence of serious incidents lately.

On December 7-8, the next round of International Discussions on Security in Transcaucasia took place in Geneva. The negotiations were attended by delegations from the Republic of South Ossetia, the Republic of Abkhazia, Georgia, the Russian Federation, the United States, as well as the EU, UN and OSCE representatives.

The work took place in two groups: on security and on humanitarian issues.
