Georgia’s Foreign Ministry: OSCE mission must be back
Nino Kalandadze, the deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia, stated the official Tbilisi supports its position on return of OSCE mission into the territory of the country.
Kalandadze highlighted that desire of Mission's work resumption had been voiced at OSCE summit in Vienna, devoted to issues of security, economy, and environment protection.
"The Georgian side has already presented its vision of OSCE Mission in conflicts. We are interested in Mission's return to Georgia and monitoring of occupied territories," Kalandadze highlighted.
Recently Marc Toner, the U.S. Department of State official representative, has also noted the necessity to return OSCE monitoring mission to Georgia.
The Mission stopped its work in Georgia on June 30th 2009. Russia vetoed the continuation of operation claiming the organization's lack of impartiality.
