State Minister Meets Chief Russian Peacekeeper

Temur Iakobashvili, the Georgian state minister for reintegration, said he met with Marat Kulakhmetov, commander of the Joint Peacekeeping Forces, in Tskhinvali on August 7.

“[The South Ossetian] separatists have again refused to hold a meeting; negotiations is the only way out of this situation. Kulakhmetov also pointed out that there is no alternative to negotiations. We are still trying to arrange a meeting [with the South Ossetian side] if not for today at least for tomorrow,” Iakobashvili told journalists.

He said that the situation in Tskhinvali was “very grave.” “No people are seen on the streets,” Iakobashvili added.
