OSCE Expresses Concern Over Tension Between Georgia Russia

VIENNA (Armenpress)–Chairman of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe–Portuguese Foreign Minister Antonio Martins da Cruz–has expressed serious concern over the current escalation of tension between Georgia and the Russian Federation.

This has become evident in official statemen’s issued by the two participating states in recent days–as well as in evidence seen by OSCE Border Monitors that a bombardment of Georgian territory took place this week in the area of Girevi–south of the Chechen part of the Georgian-Russian Federation border.

The OSCE Chairmanship has urged both participating states to refrain from any steps that could further increase tension in the Caucasus area and to adhere to the principle of resolution of security problems in the spirit of co-operation between the participating States.
