U.S State Dept. – Recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Nauru won’t make their sovereignty legitimate2009-12-17 12:59
The recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Nauru won't make their sovereignty legitimate, stated Ian Kelly, the U.S. Department of State spokesman.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"On the first issue, the issue of the island of Nauru - is that how it's pronounced, Nauru? I didn't say it right - recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia, I would just say that the recognition by Nauru, in and of itself, does absolutely nothing in our eyes to help establish or underpin in some way the legitimacy of the de facto governments in both of those separatist regions," he said - RIA Novosti.
"We consider these entities as parts of Georgia and not as separate entities. We call on all states to uphold their commitments under numerous UN Security Council resolutions and the French-brokered ceasefire agreement, and we call on all countries to support, as we do, Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty," he added.
Nauru recognized Abkhazia on December 15th, and South Ossetia on December 16th.
