Georgia’s USD 12,000 Aid to Tiny Pacific Nation
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 13 Sep.'10 / 16:53

Georgia will allocate USD 12,000 in financial aid to the tiny South Pacific island nation of Tuvalu, according to the government’s decision approved on September 10.

The decree says that the financial aid, which will be provided to the permanent mission of Tuvalu to the UN, will be used by this latter to cover the cost of “transpiration of medical cargo” from the United States to Tuvalu.
 
Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country covering just 26 square kilometers with a population of about 12,000 people.
 
Tuvalu was among those 50 countries, which voted in favor of Georgia-sponsored UN General Assembly resolution reiterating right of internally displaced persons and refugees to return to their homes in breakaway Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

One of Tuvalu's nearest neighbors is the world's smallest island nation of Nauru, which was the fourth UN-member state after Russia, Nicaragua and Venezuela, to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia in December, 2009.
