Yeltsin and Primakov discussed in detail the efforts to bring about a settlement of the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict. It was emphasized that Russia’s mediation efforts should pave the way for a final settlement of the issue.

Yeltsin drew the Minister’s attention to the need particularly to intensify the Ministry’s work to bring about a solution to the Karabakh problem.

Russia’s policy in the Caucasian region was discussed in a broad context.
