We remain steadfast in our support for Georgia and for its territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders, US State Department spokesperson Ned Price stated in response to a question about Alexander Lukashenko's arrival to occupied Abkhazia.
"We believe that Russia must be held accountable for the commitments it made under the 2008 ceasefire. Russia must withdraw its forces to pre-conflict positions and reverse its recognition of Georgia’s Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions. The Georgian ministry of foreign affairs did, as you know, release a statement today condemning the visit of Alexander Lukashenka, condemned his visit to Abkhazia, and we’d refer you to the Georgian Government for additional details," Ned Price stated.
For information, the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, arrived in occupied Abkhazia, where he met with the so-called president, Aslan Bzhania, and said that he wants not only to build a "bridge of friendship" but also "very serious relations" with Abkhazia.
