Medvedev: UN must reckon with new reality in Caucasus2009-07-10 20:25
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev stated Moscow would lift its veto on the decision to extend the UN mission's mandate in Abkhazia provided the UN's approach was more pragmatic.gt-en-newsitem-inside
As the Russian leader noted "difficulties emerged" over the issue of international monitoring mission's operation in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "Neither South Ossetia nor Abkhazia want the missions to be formally named as they were before the independence of the republics was proclaimed", - he specified. "Essentially no one is against the missions, they are helpful", - ITAR-TASS quotes.
"The UN and EU missions must operate there, but speaking about the UN mandate the mission must not create an illusion that nothing happened and must take into account the new reality, in its title too, - the Russian president emphasized. - That is why we were forced to veto this decision".
"If a more pragmatic approach is adopted we will lift our veto and reach an agreement on all issues". - Medvedev promised.
