SEIZURES

REF: STATE 94922

1. (SBU) We delivered reftel points to MFA 4th CIS
Department Deputy Director Alexei Dvinyanin September 14 --
Quad partners had been instructed to deliver the points
separately. Dvinyanin welcomed the U.S. engagement with
Georgian authorities, and confirmed that the GOR had been
weighing on the Abkhaz authorities -- both directly and
through its "embassy" in Sukhumi -- not to exacerbate the
situation. The Abkhaz, he assured us, had no intention to
"unilaterally repeat the pirate action."

2. (SBU) Noting the latest Abkhaz Incident Prevention and
Response Mechanism meeting had already discussed the ship
seizures, Dvinyanin announced that the Abkhaz, not Russia,
would "harshly" raise the issue again at the September 17
Geneva Talks. He invited the international community,
especially the U.S., to raise its voice at that venue in
opposition to Georgia's recent activities.
