EUMM DISAPPOINTED THAT INCIDENT PREVENTION AND RESPONSE MECHANISM MEETING WILL NOT TAKE PLACE

20.06.2009

The EU Monitoring Mission has expressed its disappointment that once again the South Ossetian delegation has decided that it is unable to attend the latest Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism meeting planned for Tuesday 23 June.

Head of Mission Ambassador Haber has commented:

“I am very disappointed that despite our best efforts to fulfill requests made by the de facto South Ossetian delegation at our last meeting on May 29th they have decided not to attend the resumption of our discussions planned for the 23 June. Unfortunately these talks will have to be postponed. To ensure the security and stability of the population on both sides of the administrative boundary lines, all sides need to be able to resolve issues and deal with incidents through the mechanisms agreed in Geneva in February 2009.

I very much hope that we can resume our discussions on the substantive issues that were raised at our last meeting as soon as possible.”
