Moscow Mediates to Arrange JCC

The Russian chief negotiator for South Ossetia, Yuri Popov, will hold a series of talks in Tbilisi and Tskhinvali next week to arrange a session of the quadripartite Joint Control Commission (JCC) in the Georgian capital on August 9-10.

?We will be engaged in shuttle diplomacy between Tbilisi and Tskhinvali between August 6 and August 8… to negotiate the agenda of the JCC session,? Popov told RIA Novosti news agency on July 31.

He said issues that would help to defuse tensions in the region should be discussed at the session.

If held, it will be the first JCC session for Georgia?s new State Minister for Conflict Resolution Issues, Davit Bakradze.

Bakradze said on August 1 that he didn’t expect any major results from the session.

?All the previous agreements reached in the framework of the JCC remain unfulfilled and demilitarization of the region is among them,? Bakradze told Rustavi 2 TV.
