EUMM’s mandate extended until 14 September 2011


The Council of the European Union adopted a decision extending the mandate of the European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia until 14 September 2011.

EUMM was deployed and began its operations on 1 October 2008 as a result of the Six-Point agreement signed between President Medvedev and President Sarkozy in the aftermath of the 2008 conflict between Russia and Georgia.

The Mission is mandated to monitor the compliance of all parties with the Six-Point agreement and, in close coordination with the UN and the OSCE and consistent with other EU activities, to contribute to stabilisation, normalisation and confidence building in Georgia, whilst at the same time providing information to the European policy.
