Saakashvili believes Russia will recall recognition of Abkhazia2013-05-21 12:18
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili has expressed confidence that Russia might soon abolish the recognition of the independence of Abkhazia, which Georgia considers its territory, the RBC reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Georgian president stated this after the small island nation of Vanuatu, which is located in the Pacific Ocean, recalled its recognition of the independence of Abkhazia. After the decision was announced by the authorities of the island, Saakashvili met with the Prime Minister of Vanuatu Moana Karkases Kalos to thank him.
According to Saakashvili, it is "only the first case when Russia suffered a serious defeat on the diplomatic front."
As recalled by the Rosbalt, recognition of Abkhazia by Vanuatu was ambiguous. Vanuatu recognized the independence of Abkhazia in May 2011. However, after the change of power in the country in June 2011, the decision was withdrawn. In March 2013, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vanuatu denied the establishment of diplomatic relations with Abkhazia.
Currently, in addition to Russia independence of Abkhazia is recognized by Nicaragua, Venezuela, Nauru and Tuvalu.
