SUBJECT: UN-CIS KODORI PATROL SCHEDULED, WHILE ABKHAZ TALK 
TOUGH ON UNOMIG MANDATE 
 
REF: TBILISI 2672 
 
Classified By: Ambassador John F, Tefft for reasons 1.4(b) & (d). 
 
1. (C) Georgian Deputy State Minister for Conflict Resolution 
Ruslan Abashidze told us October 9 that the main questions 
about the modalities of a UNOMIG monitoring patrol of the 
Upper Kodori Gorge with participation of CIS peacekeepers 
(reftel) had been resolved.  He said an agreement was reached 
October 7 on the size of the CIS presence -- four officers in 
two cars -- and on their security: they would carry only 
personal firearms, not automatic weapons.  Abashidze said the 
patrol was scheduled for October 12.  He said the Georgians' 
agreement was for one patrol, with a second "under 
consideration" if the first went well. 
 
2. (SBU) Abashidze also said State Minister for Conflict 
Resolution Merab Antadze had received a strong warning from 
the Abkhaz that if the upcoming decision in the UN on the 
renewal of UNOMIG's mandate was not acceptable to the Abkhaz, 
they would demand the withdrawal of Georgian Ministry of 
Internal Affairs personnel from Kodori.  If they were not 
withdrawn, the Abkhaz told Antadze that they would start "war 
preparations."
