Bakradze: Vanuatu Recognition of Abkhazia will not change the situation in the world
The head of Georgian Parliament David Bakradze commented on previously circulated information about the recognition of Abkhazia's independence from the government of Vanuatu. The recognition of Abkhazia's independence by the island republic of Vanuatu has not been confirmed, said Bakradze at the press conference.
"It does not matter, if this information is confirmed or not, because that recognition (of Abkhazia's independece) from Vanuatu will not be able to change the existing state of affairs in the world" - said Bakradze.
According to him, if Vanuatu has realy recognized Abkhazia's independence, "it will be another sign of how far in the direction of marginalization went an attempt (of Russia) to find any state and receive its agreement for recognition at any price".
"The world opinion is created by the EU, the USA and democratic nations such as Canada, Japan, Australia, Latin America and Africa, who steadfastly adhere to the position of non-recognition. Such a state, like Vanuatu, will not change this opinion" - concluded the Parliament Member.
Recall, earlier it was reported that the island republic of Vanuatu, located in the Pacific Ocean east of Australia, has recognized Abkhazia's independence. That was told in an interview with Abkhazian Foreign Minister Maxim Gvindzhia. "We exchanged the notes on the establishment of diplomatic relations and signed an agreement" - said Gvindzhia.
In 2008, Abkhazia was recognized as a sovereign state, first by Russia and then by Nicaragua, Venezuela and the Republic of Nauru.
Vanuatu is Republic, located on 83 islands of the archipelago New Hebrides, population - 215 people. The country's capital is Port Vila.
