Bujar Osmani, the Chairman-in-Office of the Organisation for Security and Co-Operation in Europe and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of North Macedonia, on Tuesday pledged the organisation’s support for Georgia’s conflict-affected population and commitment to improve their conditions. 

In a meeting with individuals internally displaced from central Georgia’s Russian-occupied Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) region who currently reside in the village of Tserovani, the visiting official reaffirmed the OSCE’s commitment to addressing their humanitarian issues.

The settlement was set up following the 2008 war between Russia and Georgia for IDPs with use of international aid, with Osmani pledging to further improve conditions of the displaced communities in his visit of the location.

He also reaffirmed the organisation’s commitment to the Geneva International Discussions - a platform facilitating talks between the Georgian Government and de facto authorities in the occupied regions.

The platform was also launched in the aftermath of the war and is co-chaired by the OSCE, the European Union and the United Nations.

Osmani started his visit to Georgia on Monday and met Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili,  Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili and President Salome Zourabichvili

The visit comes as part of his South Caucasus trip between Monday and Thursday, to discuss  security challenges and steps for peace and stability in the region with Georgian, Armenian and Azerbaijani top officials.
