2009-04-17 12:52

Yesterday in New York Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of the UN and Grigol Vashadze, the foreign Minister of Georgia, staying in the USA with a visit, discussed the issues connected with the future of the UN mission in Caucasus.


The future mandate of the Un in Georgia was the main topic, said Brendan Varma, the UN press service representative - RIA Novosti.

The UN mission is responsible for monitoring the situation along the Georgian-Abkhazian border.

The Secretary General must present his recommendations on the renewed mission mandate to the UN Security Council to May 15th.

After the events of August 2008 and the following recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russia, the stuff in the Abkhazian capital can no longer be called the UN mission in Georgia, as Moscow and Sokhumi insist.

Therefore in October 2008 the mandate was prolonged only 4 months, and the name was changed: the UN mission instead of the UN mission on monitoring in Georgia. According to the Secretary General's latest report, on January 31st 2009 the mission counted 131 military monitors (including 6 Russians) and 20 civil policemen (including 2 Russian citizens).
