Tbilisi, Georgia, Jan.24
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgian Foreign Ministry made a statement on the ratification of the so-called alliance treaty with the occupation regime of Abkhazia by Russian State Duma.
"Georgian Foreign Ministry expresses extreme concern over the ratification of the so-called agreement on alliance and strategic partnership and states that these actions of Kremlin are the step towards annexation of Georgia's integral part," said the statement.
Georgian Foreign Ministry said that by taking such steps, Russia violates its international obligations, including the ceasefire agreement of Aug.12, 2008.
"Abkhazia is the integral part of Georgia and can't be an independent entity of the international law and accordingly, any attempts to execute the so-called agreement with the so-called Republic of Abkhazia is the flagrant violation of the international law, can't produce any legal results and contradicts with the international law and fundamental principles such as sovereignty, inviolability of borders, territorial integrity and conscientious fulfillment of international obligations," said the statement.
Georgian Foreign Ministry urges the international community to assess these activities of Russia from the legal and political point of view and put pressure on it.
