The agency said “all conditions and needs” for communication and negotiation were provided for parties in the new space, noting the launch marked the end of the necessity to find alternative spaces in the region for the work.

Tinatin Zedginidze, a manager of institutional mediation development, said it would be easier for mediators to fulfil their duties in the properly equipped space.
