The basis of the document is the cease-fire agreement between Georgia and Russia, worked out through the mediation of the EU. The document was signed by David Sikharulidze, the Minister of Defense of Georgia, and Hansjörg Haber, the EUMM head.
"As long as this agreement is in force, EUMM will be able to issue, as it were, a clean bill of health to the effect that Georgia will not be able to assemble a force with sufficient escalation potential to militarily challenge the administrative boundary lines. EUMM hopes that Russia will study this arrangement carefully and in a positive spirit. If Russia decides to reciprocate this agreement, I am sure that even more security and stability is possible along the administrative boundary lines. Russia should provide clarity about the total number of its forces within Abkhazia and South Ossetia," Haber said.
The EUMM started its activities on Georgia on October 1st 2008. It comprises 250 monitors from 22 countries.
At present moment they conduct monitoring in the territories adjacent to the administrative border of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, at the next stage monitoring will be conducted directly in the territories of the republics, the Mission representatives said.
