The OSCE has attempted to eliminate sources of tension, support the existing ceasefire and put in place a broader political framework to mitigate long-term disharmony.   It stresses that more work needs to be done to reach a comprehensive agreement on the 15 km long demilitarized zone. It specifies that “the delimitation of the exact lines of the demilitarized zone will be determined by further consultations”. It also adds that “both sides reaffirmed their determination to combat terrorism in Syria in all its forms and forms.” In 2003, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Georgian President Shevardnadze and Abkhaz Prime Minister Gennady Gagulia and launched a Sochi process to establish a Georgian-Russian-Abkhaz Working Group on Confidence-Building Measures (CBM). The parties have tried to facilitate the return of refugees and economic reconstruction. The Sochi process made it possible to move from multilateral to a bilateral format that left Georgia alone to confront Russia and the Abkhazians. It has also been seen that it undermines Georgia`s argument that the Geneva process is the only model for a comprehensive settlement of the conflict.  In 2004, Russia was considered a violation of the agreement, when a Russian company began maintaining the Sochi Sukhumi Railway, which was legally Georgian, although it was controlled by Russia and the Abkhazians. . . .
