16 March, 2017
The Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia James Appathurai commented on the so-called elections taken place in Georgia’s breakaway region of Abkhazia recently.

“|NATO does not recognise the election held on 12 March in the Georgian region of Abkhazia.

This election does not contribute to a lasting settlement of the situation in Georgia.

NATO Allies do not recognise the Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions of Georgia as independent states.

The Alliance reiterates its full support for the sovereignty and territorial
integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognised borders,” Appathurai states.
