UN Secretary General’s Special Representative to Georgia Heidi Tagliavini met with Abkhaz Foreign Minister Sergey Shamba and Prime Minister Alexander Ankvab on February 21 in Sokhumi and discussed the results of the Georgian-Abkhaz talks held in Geneva on February 2-3, the Apsnypress news agency reported.

According to this report, during the talks Heidi Tagliavini stressed the necessity of opening a UN Human Rights Office and introducing a UN police component in the Gali district of Abkhazia to consult the local law enforcers.
