Humanitarian crisis in Georgia’s occupied regions is one of the major challenges – Zalkaliani

30.10.2019 – Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani commented on the recent death of Margo Martiashvili, a resident of the Ikoti village stating that the humanitarian crisis in Georgia’s Russian-occupied regions is one of the major challenges for the government.   According to the Minister, Georgia has informed the international community over the human rights and humanitarian situation in occupied regions. He also noted that Georgian authorities are in constant communication with the co-chairs of the Geneva International Discussions.
“Our citizens wake up surrounded by barbed-wire-fences and are deprived of freedom of movement which is absolutely unacceptable. It is necessary for the international community, all actors involved in the Geneva International Discussions – the OSCE, EU, UN and the US to react to the issue. We also raised the issue while meeting with the US Department of States Special Envoy and Coordinator of the Global Engagement Center Lea Gabrielle earlier today, during the NATO-Georgia Public Diplomacy Forum in Tbilisi.,” Zalkaliani said.
