Nothing
Today's Georgian-Abkhaz talks on working out security measures to be taken in the zone of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict have resulted in nothing, sources in the office of the Georgian Minister Without Portfolio reported.

Removal of customs point
The Georgian side demanded Abkhazia to remove a customs point at the administrative border separating Abkhazia from the rest of Georgia and extradite 9 convicts who escaped from a Georgian prison on September 11, 2003.

Denial
According to the Georgian Interior Ministry, the runaways are hiding in Abkhazia, the fact Abkhaz authorities are utterly denying. No information has been provided as to the date for the next talks as yet.

Involvement
The talks involved Georgian Minister Without Portfolio Malkhaz Kakabadze, Chairman of the Georgian Intelligence Department Avtandil Ioseliani, Abkhaz Foreign Minister Sergey Shamba, UN permanent representative in Georgia Heidi Tagliviani as well as representatives of the CIS peacekeeping mission in the region.
