Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept.23 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
At each high-level meeting with Russia, the European Union demands complete fulfillment of the agreement of ceasefire signed on Aug.12, 2008, Director of EU Foreign Service on the "Eastern Partnership", Russia, Central Asia, Regional Cooperation and the OSCE, Gunnar Wiegand said in Tbilisi on Thursday.
"Every day we think about how to achieve fulfillment of all items of the agreement," he stressed.
Asked by journalists about Russia's position on this issue, Wiegand said that Moscow "has a different point of view".
However, Wiegand said that the current EU monitoring mission in Georgia is a good way to fix the situation in the conflict zone. "The availability of this mission and Geneva talks between the parties are a good tool for dialogue," he said.
Russia states that it has fulfilled agreement on the ceasefire. However, Georgia indicates that Russia has not yet fulfilled the agreement items on the withdrawal of its troops.
