Solana regards situation in Georgia as broadly calm2009-08-07 16:29
Javier Solana, the EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, is content with the present-day situation in Georgia - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
He made a statement, dated to the 1st anniversary of the beginning of Georgian-South Ossetian conflict.
""I am reassured that the situation on the ground has remained broadly calm in the run up to the anniversary of last year's conflict in Georgia, despite some tension due to recent public statements and alleged violent incidents. The anniversary is an occasion to mourn the victims of the war and to make further efforts to enable the return of those who have been displaced. During this sensitive period, the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) in Georgia has contributed to the maintenance of confidence, security and stability on the ground. EUMM has not found evidence to support the various claims concerning alleged incidents that have been made over the last days. Access by EUMM to both sides of the administrative boundary line would further contribute to confidence and prevent incidents. I call on the parties to observe their obligations under the six point agreement and to raise issues of concern through the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism, and ultimately in the international discussions in Geneva," the document spread today, states.
