Georgia Disagrees with Russia’s Assessment of Regional Conflicts

TBILISI (Itar-Tass)–In response to a statement by Russia’s foreign ministry regarding the conflicts in Abkhazia and South Ossetia–the Georgian Foreign Ministry disagreed with Russia’s assessment–saying–"Today–Russia is trying again to justify the separatist regimes in Abkhazia and South Ossetia and shift the blame to the Georgian side."

The Russian Foreign Ministry statement read–"Russia favors a political and peaceful resolution of the conflicts in Georgia; these conflicts have resulted from minority rights violations that have not allowed the preservation of national identity and autonomy within the sovereign Georgian state."

The Georgian Foreign Ministry responded by saying–"The Russian side is either not fully informed about the history of these conflicts in Abhkazia and South Ossetia or does not want to recognize objective facts."
