The background of the 59th round of Geneva International Discussions (GID) is even more complex both from a security and humanitarian point of view, especially against the backdrop of the murder of Georgian citizen Tamaz Ginturi, against the backdrop of ongoing arrests and borderization process, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Lasha Darsalia told GPB First Channel.
According to him, one of the main issues on the agenda will be the murder of Georgian citizen Tamaz Ginturi.
“Unfortunately, the security and humanitarian situation in the occupied territories is complex. Therefore, the round will not be easy. Unfortunately, as always, we do not anticipate the ease of discussing the topics. The murder itself will be the main thing that the Georgian delegation will ask. In addition, the issue for which GID exists in the first place, which is the six-point agreement implementation, is on the agenda. Killing will be one of the primary discussions in this round. In the first place, it is crucial to stress that the Russian Federation is entirely accountable, demanding the necessary retribution for those at fault. As for their investigation, of course, we neither recognize nor trust the results of their investigation,” said Lasha Darsalia.
The Georgian delegation is in Geneva under the leadership of Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Lasha Darsalia. The meetings today will be devoted to technical discussions with the co-chairs, and the 59th round of the Geneva International Discussions will officially begin tomorrow.
