The issue of recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia will possibly be considered at the spring session of the Parliament of Belarus.


"It is a delicate issue demanding fundamental analysis and study", said Valeriy Ivanov, the deputy chairman of the National Assembly House of Representatives. - RosBalt.

In recent times Minsk has been under hard pressure of the EU and the USA in regard of the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia issues.

On February 23rd , at the Council meeting, Karel Schwarzenberg, the Czech Republic ( the EU chair country) Foreign Minister, said that recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by Belarus will put the country outside European context and will impede its further participation in the Eastern Partnership program.

This position of the EU was reiterated by Javier Solana, the EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy.

According to his press secretary, the EU respects the territorial integrity of Georgia and will never recognize the independency of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

A few days ago the USA supported Belarus' delaying of consideration.

Jonathan Moore, U.S. Chargé d'Affaires ad interim in Belarus stated that the position the Belarus' authorities has been right so far.

According to Moore, the issue of recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by Minsk may be a serious obstacle for further development of relations with the West.
