15.09.2010
Representatives from the Georgian Government, the Russian and defacto Abkhaz authorities and the EUMM met on 14 September in Gali for the 20th meeting chaired by the UN under the auspices of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism.

In a relaxed and businesslike atmosphere, participants discussed issues concerning the freedom of movement of the local population, in particular school teachers and students, as well as of goods and transportation across the Enguri river.

There was a discussion about recent incidents, with participants noting that there had been a decrease in the number of incidents reported in the period since the last IPRM meeting. There was also an exchange of information about criminal issues in the Gali district and participants agreed to co-operate at an operational level.  The release of a Georgian detainee by the Abkhaz authorities from prison was considered a positive confidence building measure.

Participants agreed that the next meeting will take place in Gali on 8 October 2010.
