MFA: Crimea Annexation ‘Disregards’ International Law
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 20 Mar.'17 / 12:55

The “illegal occupation and annexation” of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol by the Russian Federation, were "committed in complete disregard for the Constitution and legislation of Ukraine, as well as for the fundamental norms and principles of international law," the Georgian MFA said in its March 19 statement on the three-year anniversary of Crimea annexation.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns again the aggression committed against Ukraine and the attempts to forcefully change the borders – something that our country has also experienced,” the Georgian MFA stated.

“This practice of occupation and annexation undermines the established international order posing a serious threat to international security and stability,” the statement reads.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry reiterated “its firm support” for the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and called for “the firm and consolidated position” by the international community “ to resist the ongoing aggression against sovereign states and to ensure peace and stability through establishment of meaningful international security mechanisms on the ground.”
