Georgia, Tbilisi, March 13 / Trend, N. Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze responded to a meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and de facto president of occupied Abkhazia Alexander Ankvab.
"Our attitude towards this issue is known," she said. "Georgia will never accept the violation of its territorial integrity. All actions cause great concern and criticism."
Large scale military actions were launched in South Ossetia in Georgia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military. Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia late in August. Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow in response and has announced the two unrecognized republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia to be occupied territories.
