A special emphasis was laid on the severe humanitarian and legal situation of the population, including women and young people, living in the occupied regions of Georgia.

It is widely recognized that during armed conflict and the impact of its consequences, women make a distinctly marginalized group, but at the same time they play an important role in conflict prevention and peaceful resolution.” 

That is why we place the more active involvement of women in the implementation of reconciliation and inclusion state policy, strengthening their role, and taking into account the needs of women affected by conflict.

 Within the framework of a unified governmental approach, we will continue to fulfill our obligations under UN Security Council resolutions. Under the new National Action Plan, we have envisaged future measures and initiatives that we believe will further strengthen the role of women in the peace process, their importance in the peace process and continue to work towards the protection of women’s fundamental rights, strengthening them in various directions,” said Minister of State Tea Akhvlediani.
