NATO said Wednesday that it does not recognize the election held on March 12 in the Georgian breakaway region of Abkhazia.
This election does not contribute to a lasting settlement of the situation in Georgia, NATO said in a statement.
“NATO Allies do not recognize the Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions of Georgia as independent states,” the NATO statement said, adding, “The Alliance reiterates its full support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders.”
