2009-07-08 13:23

Alexander Nalbandov, Georgia's Deputy Foreign Minister and David Harland, Director of Europe and Latin America Division, United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations discussed issues connected with the wrap-up of the UN monitoring mission's operations in Georgia today at the meeting at Georgia's Foreign Ministry, News Georgia reports with reference to the Georgian Ministry's press and information department.


According to the Ministry apart from the mission's windup issue Nalbandov and Harland considered prospects of the UN's special agencies continuation also in conflict zones. "The parties agreed to further pursue the issues above coordinating their actions", - The Foreign Ministry reports.

It will be remembered in mid June the UN Security Council failed to extend the UN monitors' mandate in Transcaucasia because of the Russian veto. Moscow didn't agree with the resolution proposed by the Western countries that contained reference to former resolutions recognizing Georgia's territorial integrity.

Since the end of June UN military observers have begun pull-out from the zone of their prior deployment. Legally the mission stopped operations on June 16 though in fact the pull-out process will continue till mid July. Apparently the administrative and technical staff will operate in the region for two months more in order to complete their work and export the liquidated mission's property.
