"We will also push the issue of teaching Georgian in Gali schools," said Khaindrava, who will represent the Georgian side at the talks, at a news conference on August 3.
The sides will also discuss security guarantees in the conflict zone, as well as the Georgian side's proposal of a joint Abkhaz-Georgian declaration on non-resumption of hostilities. The text of this document will remain confidential until the negotiations.
The UN Secretary-General's Special Representative in Georgia Heidi Tagliavini said at a news conference on August 3 that Foreign Minister of breakaway Abkhazia Sergey Shamba has already confirmed his participation in the talks, which have been postponed twice already.
