Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb. 14/ Trend N. Kirtzkhalia/
Georgian Foreign Ministry commented on a resolution adopted by the UN Security Council.
The UN Security Council adopted the interim resolution of 1866 in New York on Feb. 13. Upon the resolution, mandate of the UN supervisory mission in Georgia prolonged to June 15.
"Despite the resolution has an interim character, significant element for Georgian national security is reflected there. It is important that the resolution of 1866 is based on earlier adopted resolutions of the Security Council. It is based especially on the resolution dated Apr. 15, 2008 upon which participants- countries of the Security Council unambiguously confirm that they support sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Georgia in the world accepted borders," Foreign Ministry's statement says.
The resolution focuses to implement six-item agreement dated Aug. 12, 2008. The agreement "obliges Russia to restore status quo already existing before the war and withdraw its military troops from Georgian territory unconditionally," the document says.
