Greece to strive for OSCE mission in Georgia resumption

2009-06-30 15:55

Dora Bakoyannis, the Foreign Minister of Greece [the president country of the OSCE] stated she won't renounce the endeavor to resume the Russia-blocked OSCE mission in Georgia.


She said the agreement on a new mandate for the mission was one of the Greece's main objectives when it came to the presidency. Bakoyannis regretted the termination of the mission and added that the new proposals were presented, and negotiations will be resumed in case there is a chance to sign a new agreement - The Vzglyad.

The OSCE mission mandate expired on June 30th, and Russia disagreed with its extension. The mission participants monitored the implementation of the cease-fire agreement [signed in August 2008, after the combat actions] in the territory adjacent to South Ossetia.

In the light of the veto set by Russia, the UN mission in Georgia mandate expired as well. At the present moment only the EU monitors continue work in the region.
