Georgia, Tbilisi, July 27 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
The presence of the EU mission is invaluable amid the lack of OSCE and UN missions in Georgia," Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister, David Jalagania, said at a briefing on July 27.
He said that a meeting of foreign ministers of EU countries is being held in Brussels on July 27. Prolonging the term of the mission in Georgia by one year is under consideration.
"This issue is likely to be solved positively," Jalagania said.
He said that the presence of the EU mission in Georgia is very important for Georgia's stability and security. "It is especially significant amid the 20 percent of Georgian territories being occupied," Deputy Foreign Minister said.
He said that Georgia hopes that the EU mission will be able to completely fulfill the assumed mandate regarding entry into the occupied territories.
