In 15 Days Georgia Has to Take Decision on Extending Mandate of Peace-Keeping Forces in Abkhazian Conflict Zone

The UN Security Council gave Georgia 15 days to take a decision on the extension of the mandate of the CIS collective peace-keeping forces to maintain peace in the zone of the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict.

On Saturday the Russian Foreign Ministry reported that taking into account that the Georgian leadership still did not agree to extend the CIS collective peace-keeping forces' mandate, the Security Council decided to hold additional consideration of the issue of the mandate of the UN observer mission in Georgia, if Georgia did not take a decision on the presence of CIS peace-keeping forces by 15 February.

The Russian Foreign Ministry indicated that thus the Security Council gave the Georgian side 15 days to take the positive, as Moscow assumes, decision. Otherwise the issue might be raised to amend the mandate and even to terminate the UN peace-keeping operation.

Last Thursday the UN Security Council unanimously adopted new resolution 1462 on the Georgian-Abkhazian settlement in which, in particular, it decided to extend the mandate of the UN observer mission in Georgia till July 31, 2003.
