Moscow Denies U.S. Mediation in Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 1 Jan.'06 / 18:23

Russian Foreign Ministry denied on December 30 that the United States are involved in mediation process to solve conflicts in South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
 
Speaking at the European Institute in Washington on December 15, the U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns said that “in Georgia, we are bridging gaps between Tbilisi, Moscow, and local leaders in the rest of Georgia.”
 
“It is well-known that in frames of current negotiating format, Russia facilitates settlement of the Georgian-Abkhaz and Georgian-South Ossetian conflicts. We do not know anything about the U.S. “bridging gaps” between Tbilisi and Moscow,” Mikhail Kaminin, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesman said.
 
In his remarks made on December 15, the U.S. Undersecretary also said that pursuing the Freedom Agenda in Russia and Ukraine; encouragement of Ukraine and Georgia to seek NATO and EU ties and pushing for reform in the Caucasus will be the U.S. Trans-Atlantic agenda for 2006.
