Statement of the EU Swedish Presidency on the situation in Georgia

On 4 August 2009 the EU Swedish Presidency made a statement on the situation on the occupied territories of Georgia. In its statement the European Union notes with concern the recent accusations of shellings and other incidents on both sides of the Tskhinvali Region's administrative boundary line.

It is indicated in the statement that European Union Monitoring Mission has no evidence to confirm mutual accusations of shellings.

The EU urges the sides to refrain from any statement or action that may lead to increased tensions at this particularly sensitive time.

The EU reaffirms the importance it attaches to all sides participating fully in the framework of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) and calls on all parties to cooperate fully with the IPRM in clarifying incidents, including those over the past few days.

The EU further calls on all sides to give the EUMM unrestricted access to both sides of the South Ossetian administrative boundary line.
