MPs Make Int’l Appeal for Declaring Abkhazia, S.Ossetia as Occupied
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 8 Apr.'10 / 19:12

Georgian parliamentary committee for foreign relations has requested lawmakers from 31 countries to “declare the two Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as being territories under Russian occupation and recognise the ethnic cleansing committed by Russia” in those territories.

“We sincerely hope that you can adopt appropriate statements of support on these matters,” a letter by the parliamentary committee reads.

The letter, according to the parliamentary committee for foreign relations, was sent to its counterpart committees of legislative bodies from 20 EU-member states, plus Norway and Island, as well as Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Israel and the United States.

“Russian policy continues to pursue the systematic undermining of Georgian sovereignty, the increased militarization of the territories Moscow has occupied, and the justification of ethnic cleansing campaigns used against Georgians in those territories. All components of this policy seek to derail Georgia’s progress and ongoing efforts at reform, as well as Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic foreign policy alignment,” the letter reads.
