On 21 October, the European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM) in Georgia became the first Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) Mission with representation by all 28 Member States.

The EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) is the only permanent international presence on the ground monitoring the situation between the two breakaway regions of Georgia, namely Abkhazia and South Ossetia. An open dialogue that takes place at meetings of the IPRM and via an EUMM-managed Hotline provides opportunities to bridge divides.

The civilian EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia helped the demining NGO ‘HALO Trust’ locate unexploded bombs from an aircraft downed during the 2008 conflict. The bombs have now been destroyed and no longer pose a threat to the inhabitants.
