February 17 in South Ossetia, a delegation co-chairs of the Geneva discussions on security and stability in the Caucasus. The delegation included Philippe Lefort (EU), Antti Turunen (UN), Padrig Murphy (OSCE). Co-Chairs took presidential envoy to post-conflict settlement Boris Chochiyev. South Ossetian delegation was represented by Foreign Minister Murat Dzhioyev, Commissioner for Human Rights under President of South Ossetia and the David Sanakoev deputy presidential envoy to post-conflict settlement Merab Chigoev.

At the beginning of the meeting, Boris Chochiev said that the Geneva discussions are effective in many ways, but at the same time, there is no progress in the security of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, in dealing with humanitarian issues.
