EUMM in Georgia head against separate missions in Abkhazia and South Ossetia2009-03-27 13:02
Hansjorg Haber, the head of the EUMM in Georgia, campaigns against opening separate EU missions in South Ossetia and Abkhazia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
It is the same complication as the OSCE and the UN face, since the EU doesn't recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and therefore establishing a separate mission there is impossible, hr said in his interview to the Echo of Moscow.
Haber proposed the authorities of Abkhazia and South Ossetia to agree to let the EU monitors' patrols to have the right for monitoring the republics' territories.
The Ossetian and the Abkhazian sides can claim they do not share the EU point of view, but it would favor peace and trust, he underlined.
Since January 1st 2009 the OSCE mission in Georgia is staying in a curtailment regime because of the absence of consensus on its prolongation between the OSCE member countries.
Russia is against prolongation of the mission in the format it existed since 1992, including the mandate for work in South Ossetia.
