Six-Point Agreement Georgia Russia

The recognition by Russia was condemned by the United States, France, the Secretary-General of the Council of Europe, the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the President of the OSCE, NATO and the G7, on the grounds that it violated Georgia`s territorial integrity, UN Security Council resolutions and the ceasefire agreement. [255] [256] [257] [258] [259] In response to Russia`s action, the Georgian government severed diplomatic relations with Russia. [260] Today, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement that Russia had never signed a ceasefire agreement with Georgia after the 2008 Russian-Georgian war. Sarkozy negotiated the agreement with Medvedev and Saakashvili. The sixth point was added at the request of the Georgian head of state. Saakashvili had initially referred to discussions on the «future status» of his separatist provinces and stressed these remarks. Medvedev agreed by phone, but Saakashvili later held out of it. Moscow said it was ultimately «the people» to decide. On 12 August, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced the halt to the «implementation of peace» in Georgia. «The operation has achieved its objective, security has been restored for peacekeepers and civilians. The perpetrator was punished and suffered heavy losses. [233] Later that day, he met with French President Nicolas Sarkozy (President-in-Office of the European Council) and approved a six-point proposal. [234] The proposal initially had four points, but Russia urged two more. Georgia has asked for the supplements to hang on; Russia opposed and Sarkozy won against Saakashvili to accept the agreement.

[235] According to Sarkozy and Saakashvili, a sixth point of sarkozy`s proposal was withdrawn with Medvedev`s approval. [236] On 14 August, the President of South Ossetia, Eduard Kokoity, and the Abkhazian President, Sergei Bagapsh, also supported the plan. [237] The next day, Condoleezza Rice went to Tbilisi, where Saakashvili signed the document in his presence. [238] On 16 August, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed the agreement. [239] George Bush said today that development was «a hopeful step,» but added: «Now Russia must respect the agreement and withdraw its troops and, of course, end military operations.» Georgian President Micheil Saakashvili approved an amended version of a six-point ceasefire proposal by French President Nicolas Sarkozy late on Tuesday, scraping a day of turbulent diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis in South Ossetia. Changes to the final status of the separatist province and future security arrangements in the volatile region were approved by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Sarkozy said.Under the plan, Both Russia and Georgia agreed to cease hostilities and withdraw their troops from lines before last week`s fire.
