UN Calls on Georgia to Put an End to Militants' Activities in Kodori Gorge

The UN Security Council in its newly adopted resolution called upon the Georgian side to fully implement the Protocol on the Settlement of the Situation in the Kodori Gorge and to put an end to the activities of illegal armed formations there.

This was reported on Saturday by the Russian Foreign Ministry Press and Information Department. Last Thursday the UN Security Council unilaterally adopted resolution 1462 in connection with the Georgian-Abkhazian settlement, in which it ruled to extend the Mandate of the United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia /UNOMIG/ up to July 31, 2003.

The resolution also contains a suggestion that the Georgian and Abkhazian sides consider a possibility of holding a new conference on confidence-building measures, which Russia has been consistently advocating, noted Russian foreign ministry officials.
