the surrounding region in accordance with the six-point Agreement and
the subsequent implementing measures. Its main tasks include:
Monitoring and analysing the situation pertaining to the
stabilisation process, centered on full compliance of the six-point

In 2008, Malta made its
first operational deployment in a civilian crisis management operation.
As a result, on 18 September 2008, Malta pledged and deployed one
officer and one senior non-commissioned officer to serve as Malta's
force contribution towards the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) in Georgia.
The AFM deployed the two Maltese Monitors at very short notice and
before EUMM to Georgia was officially launched on 1 Oct 2008. The Armed
Forces of Malta has continuously sustained this deployment with two
personnel ever since.
