JCC not Enough for Solving Conflict ? PM Tells OSCE

Russian-led negotiating format over South Ossetian conflict is immobilized, but Tbilisi is not rejecting it, Zurab Nogaideli, the Georgian Prime Minister, told the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna on October 30.

?Decisions are not made and implementation is impossible, because the format and the separatists themselves constantly reject initiatives and proposals,? Nogaideli said. “The negotiations held under the commission are prolonging the conflict.?

He said the quadripartite Joint Control Commission (JCC) was not an adequate mechanism which would bring peace in the region.

He said that three inter-dependent approaches were needed to resolve the conflict, including a consultation process over the South Ossetian status, secondly, engagement by the international community, through the JCC and other formats, to enhance security, ensure freedom of movement of goods and people, and to encourage dialogue and thirdly, implementation of a comprehensive plan for the economic rehabilitation and development of the region.

PM Nogaideli also pointed out that Tbilisi welcomed OSCE efforts in resolving the South Ossetian conflict.
