IPRM meeting failed in Ergneti


 Lado Bitchashvili, Shida Kartli

On August 29, the Georgian side planned to discuss 10 questions in the frame of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism meeting in Ergneti; however, the discussion stopped at the very first question and the meeting failed. Deputy Head of the Analytic Department at the State Security Service Irakli Antadze said that while discussing the recent developments in Chorchana village, the representatives of the de-facto government were destructive and they left the meeting. 

“Representatives of the Tskhinvali de-facto government, encouraged by the representatives of the occupation regime, were extremely destructive when discussing the Chorchana village case and they announced the ultimatum that they will create problems for the IPRM meetings unless their requirements are satisfied. The GoG representatives categorically underlined that IPRM is not the format where the parties shall speak with ultimatums; all disputed questions shall be discussed in a constructive manner. Unfortunately, they did not accept our suggestions and left the meeting,” Irakli Antadze said. 

The Ossetian side demanded the GoG to remove the police block-post, which is being constructed near the occupied Tsnelisi village until 6:00 am on August 30. 

“Unless they satisfy our request, the government of the republic will use all legal measures to defend the people of South Ossetia and the state border,” Egor Kochiev, head of the Tskhinvali de-facto government told the news agency RES after the failed meeting. 

The police block-post is located in the Georgia-controlled village of Chorchana in Khashuri municipality, which borders with the occupied village of Tsnelisi. In this light, the Georgian side states that the request of the Tskhinvali de-facto authority is cynic absurd and is not going to remove the block-post, which is being constructed for the safety of local people.
