The West does not allow Georgia to conduct direct dialogue with Russia independently.
No evidence given. As a result of the full scale military aggression carried out by Russia against Georgia, occupation of its integral parts, Tskhinvali Region and Abkhazia, and recognition of their independence, Georgia cut diplomatic ties with the Russian Federation on September 2, 2008. The Geneva International Discussions were launched after the August 2008 war to ensure the implementation of the August 12, 2008, six-point ceasefire agreement. The Geneva International Discussions is the only format, which provides an opportunity for holding a dialogue with the representatives of Sokhumi and Tskhinvali. The Geneva International Discussions are co-chaired by UN, OSCE and EU and they involve the representatives from Georgia, Russia and the United States, as well as members of Georgian exiled administrations of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia.
