As reported by Regnum.ru, today, Georgia severed diplomatic relations with the island nation of Tuvalu, which had signed up to the number of states to recognize the independence of Russian-occupied Abkhazia last year.
The corresponding decree #113 of the President of Georgia was issued February 16, 2012. The text of the decree was published on the website of the Legislative Herald of Georgia. Presidential Decree reads as follows: To stop the action protocol "On the establishment of diplomatic and consular relations between Georgia and Tuvalu".
According to Rosbalt.ru, the severance of diplomatic relations followed the decision of the leadership of Tuvalu to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Official Tbilisi considers these territories the territory of the Georgian republic under the "Russian occupation".
The island nation recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia a few months ago. However, as the agency noted, the other day the Georgian Foreign Ministry has confirmed that this information is true (previously, the Foreign Ministry expressed its doubt that the recognition, reported by Russian media, actually took place).
Recall after the war in August 2008 Russia has unilaterally recognized the sovereignty of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Following Russia, the independence of of Abkhazia and South Ossetia was recognized by Nicaragua, Venezuela, Nauru, Vanuatu and Tuvalu.
Diplomatic relations between Georgia and the state of Tuvalu were established on February 6, 2011.
