The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, Ilia Darchiashvili, thanked the Member States of the United Nations Security Council for their joint statement on the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the Russia-Georgia war.
“Thankful to the UNSC current (USA, Albania, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway, and France), as well as incoming members (Japan and Malta) for their joint statement to mark the 14 years since the Russia-Georgia war. Through such statements, the international community manifests its support to Georgia and calls on Russia to implement the EU-mediated 2008 Ceasefire Agreement,” the Minister თweeted.
At its behind-closed-doors meeting held to mark the 14th anniversary of the 2008 Russia-Georgia war, the UN Security Council discussed the situation in Georgia’s regions occupied by Russia and the issues relating to the Russia-Georgia war. Following the meeting, the representatives of the UN Member States made a joint statement.
“We reiterate our 14 years old call to Russia to reverse the recognition of the so-called independence of Georgia’s territories Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, and not to impede the creation of an international security mechanism and allow access of international human rights organizations to both regions,” read the statement.
