EU preparing civilian mission for Georgia

EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana says that EU nations are preparing to send a civilian monitoring mission to Georgia. The force could be deployed across the country to verify Russian forces are complying with the ceasefire agreement. Solana says that the mission could involve hundreds of monitors.

Solana told reporters on Monday before an EU leaders’ summit that he expects EU nations to approve the plan in the coming weeks. EU nations have already sent 40 observers to Georgia.
