United Nations Security Council resolution 849, adopted unanimously on 9 July 1993, after noting with concern the recent fighting around Sukhumi in the disputed region of Abkhazia, the Council requested the Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali to send his Special Envoy to the region in order to reach agreement for a ceasefire between Abkhazia and Georgia, and once implemented, authorised a dispatch of 50 military observers. It was the first Security Council resolution on the conflict.
The Secretary-General was also requested to make recommendations on the mandate of the military observers, while his efforts to launch a peace process involving Abkhazia, Georgia along with Russia as a facilitator and continuing co-operation with the Chairman-in-Office of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe were supported. Finally, the Government of Georgia was requested to enter into discussions with the United Nations on a Status of Forces Agreement to facilitate early deployment of observers.
