Transnational Issues

Disputes – International

Russia and Georgia agree on delimiting 80% of their common border, leaving certain small, strategic segments and the maritime boundary unresolved. OSCE observers monitor volatile areas such as the Pankisi Gorge in the Akhmeti region and the Argun Gorge in Abkhazia, while UN Observer Mission in Georgia has maintained a peacekeeping force in Georgia since 1993. The Meshkheti Turks scattered throughout the former Soviet Union seek to return to Georgia.

The boundary with Armenia remains undemarcated and ethnic Armenian groups in Javakheti region of Georgia seek greater autonomy from the Georgian government.

Azerbaijan and Georgia continue to discuss the alignment of their boundary at certain crossing areas.

Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

In 2007, there were 1,100 refugees from Russia, and 220,000-240,000 displaced people from Abkhazia and South Ossetia in Georgia.

Illicit Drugs

There is limited cultivation of cannabis and opium poppy in Georgia, mostly for domestic consumption. Georgia is used as transshipment point for opiates via Central Asia to Western Europe and Russia.
