Slovakia will support the intermediated effort of France's EU Presidency in solving the conflict in Georgia. With regard to the EU's Council for General Affairs and Foreign Relations’ Wednesday session, Slovakia will support sending an EU peace mission to Georgia. Slovakia has provided humanitarian aid to Georgia amounting to Sk5.6 million (€185,885) in order to solve the humanitarian crisis in the country. This aid is intended for all the people of Georgia affected by the armed conflict, including refugees from South Ossetia. SITA
