Sergei Lavrov: Quote Machine

"We have no interest in the pieces of paper which Mr. Saakashvili takes out of his pocket and shows to journalists." 

That was Sergei Lavrov's take on the new EU-Georgia agreement to "deploy monitors in the whole of Georgian territory."

Apparently, Lavrov has a different piece of paper in his pocket which invites EU-monitors outside of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

Since EU personnel are already part of existing OSCE missions in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, its hard to say which piece of paper really matters.
