Abkhazia and South Ossetia may join CIS upon the Commonwealth countries’ consent

2009-11-27 12:29

Abkhazia and South Ossetia may become members of Commonwealth of Independent Countries should all the CIS members give their consent.


This was stated recently by CIS Executive Secretary Sergey Lebedev during the press-conference in Minsk, RIA Novosti reports. "The CIS constituent documents do not prohibit the entrance of new members", - he said.

However, Lebedev pointed out that such step requires consent of all the CIS countries.

"The country will not be admitted to CIS should at least one state be opposed to it", - the CIS executive secretary stated. At the same time, according to Lebedev, it is not yet time to speak about Abkhazia and South Ossetia's entering CIS, so long as their independence has been recognized by none of the CIS states except Russia.

Let us remind you that the Byelorussian parliament has been discussing the issue of recognizing the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia for about a year already. Recently, the parliament of Byelorussia established a work group to prepare for the consideration of the issue; the group has surveyed the situation in Transcaucasia: on November 17-20, the Byelorussian parliamentarians visited Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
