Tea Akhvlediani stressed the necessity of informing international partners and continuation of joint efforts on the situation in occupied regions and along occupation lines, which is extremely important for the fundamental rights and freedoms of the population affected by the conflict, including free movement and unconditional and unconditional and of illegally detained citizens of Georgia To ensure an immediate release.

As you know, Russian military forces have been stationed there illegally since 1991. It was very interesting to hear from my Georgian colleague that in Tskhinvali region and Abkhazia there are human rights issues, native language education in schools, ethnic cleansing in both regions and the tragedy of hundreds of thousands of Georgians who have been forced to leave these regions.
