Georgia: European Union Monitoring Mission

Taken Question
Philip J. Crowley

July 24, 2009


Question: What is the U.S. response to Georgia’s call for the U.S. to join the EU civilian monitoring effort along the boundary between undisputed Georgian territory and South Ossetia and Abkhazia? Do we have any plans to join such a force?



  • The EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia is doing an excellent job in maintaining stability and we strongly support its continued efforts.

  • This is an EU mission, and it will determine the make up and mandate. At this time, the U.S. has not been asked to participate.
