Tbilisi won’t recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia - expert

2011-01-14 15:47

12309.jpegGeorgian deputy of the party in power Goka Gabashvili has stated that rumours about the possible pressure the West may put on Tbilisi so it would recognize Sukhum and Tskhinval do not correspond to the facts.


Let us remind you that earlier, well-known Georgian expert Soso Tsintsadze said the western countries might force official Tbilisi to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Tsintsadze's statements were caused by the communique of the latest round of Geneva talks. According to the expert, the text includes the following sentence: "The parties have agreed that the progress is impossible in the peace process without meeting Russia's demands of the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and those concerning the new reality". In Tsintsadze's opinion, this phrase may serve as a suggestion to Georgia to recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia's independence.

In his turn, Gabashvili asserts that the Geneva talks communique contains no definitions in respect of the situation with Abkhazia and South Ossetia. According to Georgian parliamentarian, in Geneva, Tbilisi raises only the issue of Russian troops withdrawal from the territory of the two republics, international peacekeeping forces location, return of refugees to their homes and only after that, the issue of considering the status of Abkhazia and RSO.

Let us remind you that after the armed conflict in South Ossetia in August 2008 launched by Georgian authorities Russia took Tskhinval's side and recognized the independence of RSO and Abkhazia. Later on, Moscow's position was supported by Nicaragua, Venezuela and Nauru.
