UN General Assembly Committee approved the Transcaucasia mission liquidation budget2009-11-26 13:20
Now the final decision on the mission liquidation budget will be taken by General Assembly at the plenary meeting in December.
At the same time, support of the relevant resolution is practically guaranteed by the decision taken by the relevant committee on Wednesday, as long as it comprises 192 members of the General Assembly, RIA Novosti reports.
In particular, the specified project implies the reduction of means that were allocated before the decision on mission closing from 36 million 80 thousand dollars to 35 million 580 thousand dollars for the period of 2008-2009. Besides, the amount of 15 million dollars allocated earlier for mission liquidation before 31 December 2009 has been reduced to 10 million, while the very period of liquidation was set to be upon the accomplishment of the task, which is before 31 October 2009.
Let us remind you that the UN mission in Georgia and Abkhazia ceased its legal existence since 16 June 2009, when Security Council failed to prolong its mandate that expired on June 15. Russia imposed a veto upon the draft resolution, for it contained references to previous resolutions where Georgia's territorial integrity was mentioned. As is known, last August Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, so it regarded such wording to be unacceptable. Moscow proposed an alternative; however, the proposal was turned down by the Western members of Security Council.
