2009-06-16 12:42

Leaders of Abkhazia will take no steps to accelerate the withdrawal of the UN mission, the madate of which wasn't prolonged, RIA Novosti reports alluding to Sergey Shamba, the Foreign minister of Abkhazia.


The mission stopped its work today at 8 a.m. [Moscow time]

Shamba mentioned that since there would be no financing of the mission, it wouldn't be able to stay, and no actions from the Abkhazian side will be needed.

At the same time he mentioned that according to the UN practice, up to 3 months are given for mission curtailment.

Shamba mentioned at the moment the Mission employees [110 military observers and 150 of civil staff] and considerable infrastructure are currently remaining in Abkhazia.

The Minister mentioned the UNSC refusal to prolong the mission was a "predictable result". He said it could be predicted judging by the information from the UN and ‘the reaction we [Abkhazian side] saw in the process of the preparation of the report by the UN Secretary General". "Such an unconstructive position of the UNSC member countries has already doubted the possibility of mission prolongation", Shamba said. He added the demands of the Abkhazian side were logic and well-grounded: it wanted the UN mission to be presented in the state which has nothing to do with Georgia.
