Georgia to Abandon Ossetia Peace Deal?

by Nathan Hamm on 7/21/2004

New Russian arms moving into South Ossetia are drawing protest from Georgia and threats to withdraw from the 1992 peace deal.

On its own, that’s news-worthy enough.

I was surprised however, to see that abandonment of the peace deal is part of these policy reccomendations (PDF) from Vladimir Socor of the Jamestown Foundation. Not in that particular form, but he calls for something very similar. The reccomendations are only two pages and worth a read if you follow this particular conflict or Russian behavior in its near abroad.
