U.S. Does Not Recognize Abkhazia Polls
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 16 Mar.'17 / 15:32

The United States “fully supports the territorial integrity of Georgia and its sovereignty within its internationally recognized borders” and does not recognize “the results of an election conducted illegitimately in Georgian territory without the consent of the Government of Georgia,” the U.S. Embassy said on March 16.

The United States also condemned “the decision to integrate the military forces of the breakaway region of South Ossetia with those of the Russian Federation.”

“The United States believes the Geneva International Discussions is the forum to address the situation in Georgia’s Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions, and so we urge all participants to avoid actions which undermine these discussions,” the statement also said.

Voters in Abkhazia cast their ballots on March 12 to elect the region’s 35-member National Assembly.
