Swiss, EU observers to be placed on Georgian border

Swiss or EU observers will be placed on Georgia’s internationally recognized border, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Tornike Gordadze said on Friday while commenting on Georgia’s consent to a Swiss proposal on the Georgian-Russian negotiations on Russia’s accession to the WTO.

“Neutral observers will be placed on the border who will contact with the EU or Switzerland,” he said. “This means that the observers will be responsible to the EU or Switzerland, rather than Russia.”

He said all goods that cross the country will be considered after the observers are deployed along the Georgian economic border.

“Goods have not been registered for many years,” he said. “Georgia’s main requirement was satisfied.”
