Comment of the Press and Information Department regarding the so-called visit of the occupation regime’s representatives to Syria

Published in Politics
Friday, 25 August 2017 12:06

he so-called visit of the occupation regime’s representatives to Syria – a war-torn country where Russia tries to reinforce its influence at all costs - represents a follow-up to Russia’s and its occupation regimes’ provocative policy with respect to Georgia. 
By resorting to such actions, Russia makes futile efforts to legitimize the occupation regimes and the violent redrawing of the borders of the sovereign state.

Diplomatic representatives of Syria, as well as international partners have been contacted and duly informed about the matter.

Due to our government’s intensive work with the international community, the territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders has not been called into question.

We call on all sovereign states to respect the territorial integrity of Georgia and its sovereign rights and to avoid any involvement in planned provocative activities.
