"Taiwanization" of Sukhum and Tskhinval2011-11-16 12:42
The process of international recognition of sovereignty of Abkhazia and South Ossetia cannot be stopped. Though only five states have decided to recognize two Caucasian countries, more and more countries become interested in economic cooperation with Sukhum and Tskhinval.
Taiwan's statement about intention to develop trade-economic and cultural relations with former Georgian autonomies has become another confirmation of this fact. Tbilisi immediately hastened to declare that they saw no danger in this. In fact, they had no choice. Even despite not many countries have recognized the sovereignty of Abkhazia and South Ossetia yet, nevertheless, the process goes.
Georgia failed to arrange the fate of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which after nearly forty years of existence is recognized by no one, for the former autonomies. So the Georgian rulers willy-nilly had to learn to pretend they do not attach importance to the interest which young Caucasian states cause in world capitals.
"Georgia is doing everything to preserve and continue the policy of non-recognition of the occupied regions - Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and this policy is carried out successfully still, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Nino Kalandadze commented information on the readiness of Taipei to Economic Cooperation with Tskhinval. Russia is very active working at the international stage in order to give legitimacy to occupied regions of Georgia, recognized by them, including indirectly through the establishment economic ties with these regions, but all their attempts are unsuccessful so far. And Georgia, in contrast to Russia, was able to successfully carry out the policy at the international stage aimed at the non-recognition of the occupied regions. I hope that our policy will be successful in the future".
We leave the imaginary "success" of international politics in the matter of non-recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Tbilisi (even one single recognition of the sovereignty means getting out of international isolation, which North Cyprus, for example, cannot achieve for nearly forty years) to the conscience of Mrs. Kalandadze. It would seem that in this case, Georgian politicians really have nothing to worry about. After all, Taiwan itself remains partially recognized state, not being a member of the UN.
