Reminder
Today the CIS summit in Yalta has adopted a special document on the problem of Abkhaz settlement, Vladimir Putin said at a press conference. The document has been adopted on Georgia's initiative and "reminds of the problem and ways for its solution".

Peacekeeping
In the early 90s, Abkhazia, lying on Georgia's Black Sea coast, proclaimed independence. Now Russian peacekeeping forces are deployed there under the CIS aegis.

Unsettled problems
The Russian president voiced regret that, alongside the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict, "there still are many unsettled problems" in the territory of the former USSR.
"We all want them to be settled on the basis of international law," peacefully, said Putin.

Shevardnadze pleased
Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze thanked the leaders of other Commonwealth countries for support given to his initiative.
