We will stay in Georgia as long as necessary, EUMM Head of Mission Dimitrios Karabalis said at a press conference, which marked the 15th anniversary of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia.
According to him, the EUMM presence over the past 15 years stands as a testament to the EUs long-term commitment to fostering peace and security.
“For a decade and a half, the EUMM has played a pivotal role in ensuring stability and reducing tensions in Georgia and wider region. Our presence over the past 15 years stands as a testament to the EUs long-term commitment to fostering peace and security,” said Karabalis during the press conference.
“The European Unions long-term commitment to peaceful conflict resolution in Georgia and the wider region was also clearly underscored by the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Mr. Josep Borrell, who visited Georgia in September,” the Head of EUMM said during his presentation.
At the end of the press conference, Dimitrios Karabalis said: “We remain dedicated to our mission of improving the lives and security of local communities. We will stay in Georgia as long as necessary.”
