International Crisis Group announced the report on Georgia-Abkhaz conflict, the APA Georgia bureau reports. The reports called for conflict sides to rehabilitate the negotiations, Georgia President Mikhail Saakashvili to meet with factual leader of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh. International Crisis Group called on Tbilisi and Sokhumi to sign an agreement on the non-resumption of hostilities and IDP/refugee return from Gali district; to restore the rail link via Abkhazia. Besides, Russia should stop its sanctions against Georgia. If the sides continue to flex their muscles and do not resume talks, there could be renewed hostilities in 2007, especially in and around the Kodori valley. “Moscow and Sukhumi oppose these changes, and they are not strongly backed by Georgia’s Western partners.� The report calls on the Georgian side “to lower the Abkhaz government in exile’s profile significantly and refrain from holding alternative elections for local government or parliamentary representatives in Abkhazia.� The sharp deterioration in Russian-Georgian relations and Georgia’s Kodori valley offensive has thwarted further progress./APA/
