On 13 April 2010, the fifteenth meeting of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM), chaired by the United Nations, was held in Gali.
Participants exchanged updated information and clarification on various issues including on crossing points for pedestrians and vehicles in order to facilitate the passage for the local population. They also exchanged specific information on the activities of coastal guard boats in adjacent waters.
After examining the case of a homemade landmine reportedly found and later defused in close proximity to Otobaia village, participants once again underlined the importance of hotline as a vital tool to respond to such kind of incidents.
The meeting took place in a professional and constructive atmosphere, with participants engaging in a respectful manner.
Participants agreed that the next meeting of the IPRM would take place in Gali on 5 May 2010.
