ON ANNIVERSARY OF INITIAL WITHDRAWAL: EUMM CALLS ON RUSSIAN AUTHORITIES TO HONOUR COMMITTMENTS UNDER SIX POINT AGREEMENT AND WITHDRAW FROM PEREVI CHECKPOINT

11.12.2009

The EUMM has called for the Russian authorities to honour their committments under the Six Point Agreement and withdraw their checkpoint at Perevi behind the administrative boundary line. The Head of the EUMM Ambassador Haber has commented:

“A year ago we were welcoming Russian Forces as they dismantled their checkpoint at Perevi after discussions with the EU, confirming by their actions our long held view that the checkpoint was indeed in Tbilisi administered territory.

Unfortunately, very shortly afterwards Russian Forces returned and still remain in the original spot. This is a clear breach of the Six Point  Agreement. I very much hope that the Russian authorities will feel able to meet their commitments.”

EUMM has agreed, and communicated to the Russian side, arrangements with the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs for a smooth transition in the area in the event of a Russian withdrawal.
