The borderization activities in the area of Gugutiantkari village of Gori Municipality must be stopped, – Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia Edgars Rinkēvičs said.
“The borderization activities in the area of Gugutiantkari village Georgia by the Russian-backed authorities in Tskhinvali are another blatant violation of Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
I support the statement by the EU delegation in Georgia, this illegal activity must be stopped,” Edgars Rinkēvičs has tweeted.
On August 29, the EU Delegation to Georgia released a statement in agreement with EU Heads of Mission in Georgia on borderization activities in the area of Gugutiantkari village, Gori Municipality.
“The erection of fences by de-facto authorities of South Ossetia backed by Russian border guards in the vicinity of Gugutiantkari village hinders freedom of movement and will deprive people of the local area from accessing orchards and water resources. It is crucial that this work is stopped and that all relevant actors make active use of the existing mechanisms for communication – the Hotline and the Ergneti Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism format,” read the statement.
