The head of the European Union’s representation in Georgia, Janos Herman, said that the EU condemns the decision of Syria to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia and South Ossetia reported that Syria recognized the independence of the two republics. After that, Georgia began the procedure for severing diplomatic relations with Syria.

“The EU fully supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders, and therefore we condemn the decision of Syria that is contrary to international law,” Herman told journalists after the meeting in the Georgian Foreign Ministry.

He added that the EU will continue to make efforts towards the peaceful settlement of conflicts.

Georgia on the night of August 8, 2008, fired South Ossetia from the Grad rocket launcher, Georgian troops attacked the republic and destroyed part of its capital, Tskhinvali. Russia, defending the inhabitants of South Ossetia, many of whom took Russian citizenship, introduced troops into the republic and after five days of fighting displaced the Georgian military from the region. Moscow on August 26, 2008 recognized the sovereignty of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

@JerryDrakeJr, Serbia has the same borders as the Kingdom of Serbia before the end WW I. After that the Entente powers: UK, France and US helped the Serbs to illegally occupy the land of some other South Slavonic and Albanian nations. And during the Yugoslav wars the same powers withdrew their support and bombed the Serbs. And now the Serb losers are wining that the UK, France and US (Entente) are so unjust and ungrateful. They forget that the Bosniacs, Croats and Hungarians kicked their posteriors during WW I and that the only gained more land by outside help of… Read more »

Hey, you’re mistaken! The EU is NOT the European Council which prolonged the sanctions on Syria! European Council decisions are NOT binding and there are 47 countries in, including Russia, Serbia, Ukraine, Norway, etc etc which are not the EU as it’s ALL Europe’s countries who have seats… It’s a bit like UNGA which’s resolutions are not binding too! If EU had enforced sanctions, Italy wouldn’t have maintained trade with Syria without getting sanctions, same for the Bavarian länder! And so, EU say they disagree with this decision of building diplomatic ties? Who cares, they said the same for moving… Read more »

@Ivan suck Yourself – because U slander without facts.

Turkey, the Bani Saud, the Bani Thani and the US that supported the terrorists are not part of the EU.

The sanctions come from the US. The EU is not so much in love with Syria’s government and president that they start a fight with the US about him.

p.s. The EU is economically even stronger than the US. Take care that the EU does not give Your country a licking.

“international law”,”european valus”,”western democracy ” have become empty words with no meaning anymore and EU has caused their degradation by applying double standards.

p.s. And Your country never had supported law and democracy.

EU is blind on one eye. These two small nations have the same rights to sovereignty as big nations. Either the bigger states behave and treat minorities well – or they must become independent. The same will happen in Kurdistan and at some other places.
