2009-05-22 12:47

Sergey Bagapsh, the leader of Abkhazia, believes that despite some positive moments in the UN Secretary General's report on the situation in Caucasus [the title of the report itself and the name of the UN mission], the draft resolution includes paragraphs the Abkhazian side cannot accept, RIA Novosti reports alluding to Bagapsh's press service.


The establishment of so-called 20-kilometer security zone in the zone of Georgian- Abkhazian conflict is out of the question, Bagapsh said at yesterday's meeting with Michael Davenport, the UK Foreign Office Director for Russia, the South Caucasus and Central Asia. Bagapsh also condemned the point concerning the Geneva Talks, where, in his view, Abkhazia is given the status of non-full fledged participants. He added that with this approach Abkhazia may revise the issue of its participation.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary General presented the imitative to establish a new regime of ensuring security between Georgia and Abkhazia, on the basis of which new tasks and new UN mission mandate in the region can be worked out, states Ban Ki-moon's report to the UNSC - RIA Novosti.

For the first time the title of the document there is no allusion to Abkhazia's belonging to Georgia - unlike other Secretary General's reports on the topic.

One of the points mentions the UN mission on stabilization, and in fact, it may mean Ban Ki-moon's proposal to change the name of the mission.

He also proposed 11 elements of the new security regime, including establishment of security areas on the ground, in the sea, in the airspace; zones of armament limitations; mechanisms of mutual informing; monitoring from the UN side etc.

According to the report, on the basis of the new regime a new mission mandate must be worked out.

The UNSC members will officially consider the report on the joint sitting on May 27. Before June 15th the UN Security Council must adopt a resolution basing on the principle of the Secretary General's proposals mentioned in the report.
