2009-05-04 16:06

Georgia expects no additional complications in connection with Russia's chairmanship in the UN Security Council [started on May 1st ], said Zurab Kachkachishvili, the Foreign Ministry of Georgia spokesman, at the weekly briefing - Novosti-Gruzia. "Russia has already had the right for veto. If Russia wants to block some decision, it can do it", Kachkachishvili said.


He mentioned that being the chair country of the Security Council, Russia may influence procedural issues, "but it will not change the political landscape in the Security Council".

Russia accepted chairmanship in the UNSC on May 1st in accordance with the alphabet principle rotation.

In the period of the Russian chairmanship the report of Ban Ki-Moon, the UN Secretary General, to the Security Council, containing proposals on the UN mission in Georgia and Abkhazia renewal, must be prepared. This is the demand of the UNSC Resolution 1866, adopted in February 2009.
