Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili still hasn’t provided sufficient assurances that the country won’t attack South Ossetia and Abkhazia, according to Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Such a guarantee was the only precondition Russia issued for the complete withdrawal of its troops from the region.

“We have only demanded that Mikhail Saakashvili does one thing – pledges not to use force against South Ossetia and Abkhazia. He still hasn’t given any clear guarantees of that. The European Union did it for him,” said Sergey Lavrov

The Russian foreign minister also warned the European Union that the Georgian government could try to re-ignite the conflict.

Under an agreement reached by President Medvedev and President Sarkozy on the 8th of September in Moscow, the European Union is obliged to guarantee peace in Abkhazia and South Ossetia after the withdrawal of Russian peacekeeping forces.

To ensure the smooth exit of Russian forces, 200 EU troops should be deployed to the area by the 1st of October. The success of the operation depends on the support of the Georgian side. However, Mikhail Saakashvili hasn’t made any official pledges yet.
