25.03.2020 - Press release

A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (25 March) on the illegal elections that were held in the Abkhazia region of Georgia on 22 March:

The German Government stands resolutely shoulder to shoulder with Georgia as regards its sovereignty and territorial integrity within the internationally recognised borders.

Like our partners in the EU, we do not recognise the constitutional or legal framework for the so-called ‘presidential elections’ held in the breakaway Georgian region of Abkhazia on 22 March. We regard these ‘elections’ and their outcome as illegal.
