The FINANCIAL -- On September 5, State Minister for Reconciliation and Civic Equality Ketevan Tsikhelashvili and Deputy Foreign Minister Davit Dondua discussed human rights and security situation in Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia at the NATO-Georgia Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

At the Commission meeting, NATO allies reaffirmed their support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and condemned Russia’s recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states, according to Civil.ge.

At the meeting, State Minister Tsikhelashvili spoke of the situation in the occupied regions, including humanitarian and security challenges. She underscored that Russia “is trying to deepen the gap among the communities on the ground,” and that the death of Archil Tatunashvili while in Tskhinvali custody, is “not an exceptional” but represents “the tragedy” and “the gravest indication of [Russia’s] continuous occupation.”
