WASHINGTON, August 30 (Itar-Tass) — U.S. Administration does not recognize the results of Friday's presidential election in the Republic of Abkhazia, a senior spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of State told a daily press briefing Monday.
“ [..] the United States does not recognize the legitimacy or the results of the August 26 so-called elections,” said Victoria Nuland, the spokeswoman.
She referred to Abkhazia as a “region of Georgia.”
“We reiterate our support for Georgia’s sovereignty, territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,” Nuland said.
“We urge Russia to fulfill all of its obligations under the 2008 ceasefire agreement, including withdrawal of forces to pre-conflict positions and free access for humanitarian assistance to the territories,” she said.
Russia recognized the state sovereignty and independence of two former regions of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, at the end of August 2008.
