Georgia, Tbilisi, May 29 / Trend, N.Kirtskhalia /
According to international law principles, respect for Georgia's sovereignty is part of Serbia's national interests, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said at a briefing commenting on Serbian President's statement on the possible recognition of Abkhazia's independence.
"First of all on this issue I must say that the people of Georgia and Serbia are bounded with the same historical past, Orthodox Christianity and cultural relations. In 1990s the two countries have passed through the same tragic past. Georgia, like the Serbian people, tends to the European structures. Everyone knows that the EU strongly supports Georgia's territorial integrity and we are confident that observance of international law, that envisages protection of Georgia's territorial integrity and respect for its sovereignty is part of Serbia's national interests," Kalandadze said.
Kalandadze expressed confidence that, the misunderstanding will be settled after consultations within the European Union.
