TBILISI, DFWatch – The political party For a Renewed Georgia will today open a regional office in Mtskheta-Mtianeti north of Tbilisi for refugees from the Akhalgori region.

Party leaders will meet residents of Tsilknisi and Tserovani, two villages where most of the refugees from Akhalgori live. Akhalgori is a tiny strip of land taken over by breakaway South Ossetia in the August 2008 war.

The party says it plans to open several more regional offices in Mtskheta-Mtianeti in the near future, one of Georgia’s nine regions.
