The EUMM (EU Monitoring Mission) in Georgia has never recorded any Georgian military presence build-up near Abkhazia and South Ossetia, stated Hansjorg Haber, the EUMM head in Georgia - RIA Novosti.


The Mission gets reports of drawing units near the administrative border; each time monitors came on site, and each time the messages appeared to be wrong, Haber told in his interview in the air of the Echo of Moscow.

According to the Mission head, Georgia has two agreements with the EU. In accordance with the first one, the Georgian side must not draw troops in the so-called adjacent zones. Haber stated Tbilisi fully complies with this obligation, and only police units can be found there.

The second agreement obliges Georgia not to draw military units in certain zones around Abkhazia and South Ossetia; and the Georgian side also complies with it, Haber said.

Commenting upon information of a significant number of Georgian military, disguised as policemen, gathering near South Ossetia and Abkhazia, the EUMM in Georgia head noted that these policemen has no heavy weapons, necessary for the use of military force.
