Russian Foreign Minister to host separatists

Following the visit of European leaders to the Russian capital, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov hosted Abkhaz and Ossetian separatists in Moscow on September 9 for negotiations on diplomatic cooperation.

Lavrov met with the Foreign Minister of self-proclaimed South Ossetia, Murad Jioev, and Sergey Shamba, the de facto Foreign Minister of Abkhazia. Russia drafted several agreements, which define the terms of the establishment of official diplomatic ties and military cooperation between Russia and the separatists.
