U.S. condemns decision on ‘referendum’ in breakaway South Ossetia region

The U.S. Embassy condemns the decision to conduct an illegitimate “referendum” in Georgia’s South Ossetia region, planned for April 9, - reads the statement released by the U.S. Embassy to Georgia. 

‘Such provocative actions erode trust and confidence and undermine the Geneva International Discussions. The United States will not recognize the results of an illegitimate referendum that is conducted in Georgian territory without the explicit consent of the Government of Georgia. Both the South Ossetia and Abkhazia regions are integral parts of Georgia, and we reiterate our strong support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders.

The United States supports the Geneva International Discussions as the forum to address the situation in Georgia's Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions. We urge all participants to avoid actions, including the proposed referendum, which undermine these discussions,’ the statement reads.
