Security talks between Georgia and Russia have resumed in Geneva, RFE/RL reports. There had been a delay caused by Russia's withdrawal from the talks after the Abkhazian authorities refused to send a delegation.
Meanwhile the New York Times has published an op-ed article by three former diplomats, Denis Carboy, William Courtney and Kenneth Yalowitz, expressing apprehension about the current situation in Georgia, which they say is still under a growing military threat from Russia. They call on the United States government to head fresh efforts to prevent a "new tragedy" in Georgia. Denis Carboy is interviewed by RFE/RL.
