UN Mission to leave Georgia and Abkhazia today

2009-07-15 11:42

Today the United Nations military observer group comprising nearly 130 persons is leaving Georgia and Abkhazia.


The monitors are going away from the region together with the last peacekeepers, Interfax reports.

It will be remembered that in June Russia used its right of veto at the UN Security Council session to block the UN's resolution draft on extension of the monitoring mission in Georgia and Abkhazia.

As Georgia Times wrote earlier Russian President Dmitry Medvedev stated Moscow would lift its veto on this decision provided the organization adopted a more pragmatic approach.

As the Russian leader remarked "difficulties emerged" with regard to operation of international monitoring missions in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "Neither South Ossetia nor Abkhazia want the missions to have formally the same names as they had before independence of the republics was proclaimed", - he specified. "Essentially nobody is against the missions, they are helpful", - Dmitry Medvedev highlighted.

"If the approach is more pragmatic we will lift our veto and come to terms on all issues", - he promised.
