EU Monitoring Mission mandate in Georgia extended

2012-09-14 13:02

On Thursday, the Council of Europe adopted a decision to extend the European Union monitoring mission in Georgia for another year. This was stated by the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, the Interfax reported.


"The EUMM has made an important contribution to security and stability in Georgia and in the region over the past four years", said in Ashton's communique.

After the 2008 war, the European Union monitoring mission in Georgia was located near Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

As recalled by the VZGLIAD, earlier, Abkhazia refused to allow the head of the mission Andrzej Tyszkiewicz to its territory, having called him "undesirable person".

The Abkhaz side stated that Andrzej Tyszkiewicz, in particular, had not verified information about illegal paramilitary formations in western Georgia.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia Vyacheslav Chirikba called "principled" the position related to Andrzej Tyszkiewicz. "We won't compromise", he said. That's why, he said, the resumption of Gali meetings is impossible now.
