TBILISI, December 06, (ITAR-TASS). U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Victoria Nuland has promised to express firm support to Georgia’s territorial integrity in what she termed as internationally recognized borders of the country when she holds talks with Russian officials in Moscow December 7 and December 8.
She said it after meetings with the Georgian President, Prime Minister and Parliament Speaker.
Georgia’s problem has will always been and will always be a focal point of talks between U.S. officials and their Russian partners, Nuland said. This time, the American representatives will again reaffirm unambiguously Georgia’s territorial integrity, she added.
The U.S. would like to see normalization of relations between Georgia and Russia and would welcome more progress in that process, Nuland indicated.
She made a one-day visit to Tbilisi.
U.S. considers the borders, in which Georgia emerged as an independent state after its breakaway from the Soviet Union in 1991, to be the internationally recognized ones. Washington does not recognize the state sovereignty of the Republic of Abkhazia and the Republic of South Ossetia, two formally constituent regions of Georgia before August 2008.
