The United States shares Georgia's position over the actions of Russia, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a meeting with Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze in Berlin.

Clinton stressed that the United States urges Russia to fulfill the conditions of the ceasefire agreement.

"We continue to strongly support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia," the Georgian television channels report quoting Clinton as saying.

Military actions were launched in the unrecognized republic of South Ossetia in August 2008. Georgian troops entered Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia and later Russian troops occupied the city and drove the Georgian military back to Georgia. Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia on Aug. 26 and established diplomatic relations with them on Sept. 9, 2008.
