26.08.2019 - Press release

A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (26.08.2019) on the illegal elections in the Abkhazia region of Georgia:

The German Government stands resolutely shoulder to shoulder with Georgia as regards its sovereignty and territorial integrity within its 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 25 August. We regard these ‘elections’ and their outcome as illegal.
