A Greek proposal for the return of OSCE observers

(B2)Greece – which currently chairs the OSCE – has made a proposal to allow the return of observers from the Organization for Security and European Cooperation to South Ossetia. This offer, according to the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reported in the Greek press, would include the establishment of two offices, named by the city where they will be headquartered, a “Tbilisi” office and a “Tsinkvali” office. These two offices would be placed under the authority of a third, responsible for coordination and relations with other countries. This
office could simply be established in Vienna, at the OSCE headquarters. Unless another city is chosen. Several meetings on this subject are planned in Tbilisi next week.
