USA: Caracas’ position doesn’t mean legitimacy of South Ossetia and Abkhazia2009-09-10 17:18
Recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Venezuela doesn't add legitimacy to their status, said Philip Gordon, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, commenting upon Hugo Chavez' statement - Interfax.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Previously Georgia Times reported that at today's negotiations with Russian President Dmitri Medevedev, Hugo Chavez, his Venezuelan counterpart, claimed about recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by his country.
"Now I'd like to take the opportunity and claim that Venezuela joins the recognition of independency of republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia", Chavez said.
He underlined that today Venezuela would start necessary procedures to legitimize the fact - RIA Novosti.
"Thanks. You made a number of important statements, we'll discuss it now", Medvedev said.
"We always believed that recognition is the sovereign affair of every state: to recognize or not recognize, but we surely are not indifferent to the fate of these states, and I would like to thank you for your making this decision", the president of Russia said.
Venezuela followed the suit of Russia and Nicaragua.
