Sukhum. 4 July. Apsnypress. The 48th Round of the Geneva International Discussions on Security and Stability in the South Caucasus, which was attended by representatives from the Republic of Abkhazia, the Republic of South Ossetia, Georgia, the Russian Federation and the United States under the co-chairmanship of the United Nations, the OSCE and the EU, took place in Geneva
 
 The delegation of the Republic of Abkhazia, headed by Foreign Minister Daur Kove, included Deputy Chairman of the State Security Service of the Republic of Abkhazia Vladimir Arlan, as well as the staff of the Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia, the participants of the Geneva discussions Lasha Avidzba, Arthur Gagulia, Alias ​​Asabua, Jamal Bganba and Madina Shamba.

  During the 48th round of the Geneva discussions, the negotiators continued to discuss the adoption of a joint oral statement on the commitment of the parties to the non-use of force, which would be an important step towards signing a legally binding agreement on the non-use of force between Georgia and Abkhazia and Georgia and South Ossetia. Unfortunately, once again the parties failed to agree on a compromise version of the text of the oral statement, as a result of which, it was decided to continue working on the text of the statement in the next round of discussions.
 
 During the discussion of the situation on the borders of Abkhazia, Georgia and South Ossetia, most of the participants in the meeting expressed concern over the introduction of a temporary restriction on the crossing of the state border of the Republic of Abkhazia with Georgia along the Ingur River, and also called on the Abkhaz side to lift these restrictions as soon as possible.
 
 In turn, representatives of the Republic of Abazia stated that the decision to impose a temporary restriction on the crossing of the state border along the Ingur river is connected with mass provocative actions in Georgia. It was also stressed that this decision is temporary. 
 
 At the same time, all the participants, with the exception of the Georgian representatives, agreed that the situation in the border area remains stable and calm. 
 
 In addition, during the talks, the Abkhaz side called on the participants of the meeting to pay serious attention to the statement by Georgian MP, Akakiy Bobokhidze, who in his statement during the meeting of the 26th session of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy, in fact admitted the murders on the territory of Abkhazia. Representatives of Abkhazia also reported that the Military Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Abkhazia is investigating this statement. 
 
 The Abkhaz side also called on representatives of Georgia to set up a special commission to investigate the fact of Akakiy Bobokhidze’s participation in the 1992-1993 Georgian-Abkhaz conflict and his committing crimes on the territory of Abkhazia.
 
 Special attention in the agenda was devoted to the issue of renewing the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) in Gal. The Abkhaz side once again declared its commitment to resume the work of this format, only after the Georgian side fulfilled the demands put forward by it.
 
 Representatives of Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Russia reiterated their concern over the increasing activity of NATO in Georgia, which represents a serious threat to security in the region.
 
 In the second working group, the participants discussed a number of humanitarian tasks, including the areas of environmental safety, preservation of cultural heritage, the search for missing people, as well as educational issues.
 
 During the round, all participants in the meeting expressed a general opinion about the need to create new approaches to improve the effectiveness and advance the work of the Geneva discussions. 
 
 The 49th round of the International Geneva Discussions on Security and Stability in Transcaucasia is scheduled for October 8-9, 2019.
