 Tuvalu takes back recognition of independence of Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia Tuvalu has taken back the recognition of independence of Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia.
The above-mentioned became known during the visit of Tuvalu’s governmental delegation to Georgia. The delegation signed a protocol on establishing diplomatic and consular relations with the Georgian side. The protocol was signed from Tuvalu’s side by the Minister of Environmental Protection, Foreign Affairs, Labour and Trade, while the Georgian side was represented by Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze.
As per the protocol, the sides agreed that the states will develop relations on the grounds of the principles of sovereign equality, friendly relations and cooperation, territorial integrity, non-violation of borders and non-interference in homeland affairs.
The protocol emphasizes the fact that Tuvalu recognizes the territorial integrity of Georgia within its international recognized borders, including its regions – Abkhazia’s autonomous republic and Tskhinvali region.
With the above-mentioned act Tuvalu took back its decision on recognition of independence made in 2011 and confirmed its support to Georgian sovereignty, territorial integrity and respect to the principles of international law.
Georgia welcomes establishment of diplomatic relations with Tuvalu and expresses hope that Tuvalu’s decision will become an example for several states that had recognized Georgia’s occupied regions through violation of fundamental principles of international law.
