Georgia has launched procedures to cut diplomatic relations with the Syrian Arab Republic

Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (so-called South Ossetia) are the territories occupied by Russia after the Russo-Georgian War in 2008. After the 2008 war and subsequent Russian military occupation of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (South Ossetia), the Russian government, along with several others, considers the territories as sovereign independent states: “the Republic of Abkhazia” and “the Republic of South Ossetia”. Before Russian occupation, the unrecognized Republic of Abkhazia and the unrecognized Republic of South Ossetia did not completely control their respectively claimed territories.
