EU mission in Georgia can be prolonged

2009-03-13 13:02

The EU may prolong the mandate of its mission (EUMM) in Georgia, stated today the EUMM head, Hansjoerg Haber - ITAR TASS.


'If indeed after June we have no more UN or OSCE mission, then Georgia's need (for security) will concentrate on EUMM ... There should be one element of stability in the form of an international presence on the ground, and therefore we could not consider phasing out EUMM at this point in time,' Haber said.

The mission of Миссия из 200 European monitors was deployed in Georgia last autumn. Its mandate expires in September 2009. According to Haber, the EU countries share the idea of need for international monitors to stabilize situation in Georgia.

He noted that the EUMM in Georgia mandate can be prolonged on 6 months or one year.
