Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has met with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the sidelines of the UNGA session in the US, telling him that the humanitarian situation in Georgia’s Russian occupied Tskhinvali and Abkhazia region is severe. 

Garibashvili said that the UN engagement and its ‘decisive steps’ for incident prevention in the occupied territories are important. 

He stated that the report of the UN secretary-general on the internally displaced persons from Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions of Georgia, along with resolutions of the General Assembly of UN (UNGA) and Human Rights Council (UNHRC) are the ‘most important mechanisms’ to maintain the topic of the occupied regions on the international agenda. 

Garibashvili stated that Georgia remains committed to the peaceful resolution of the conflicts.
