US calls on Russia for withdrawal of troops from Georgia’s occupied territories

Heather Nauert, Spokesperson of US Secretary of State called on Russia for fulfillment of the 2008 ceasefire agreement, and withdrawal of its armed forces from Georgia’s occupied territories in connection with the 10th anniversary of August 2008 Georgia-Russia war during the news briefing.

“Abkhazia and South Ossetia are inseparable regions of Georgia and not parts of Russia. The US continues supporting Georgia’s state sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. This policy is unwavering. The US calls on Russia for pullout of armed forces to pre-war conditions,” Nauert stated.

On the question, if the US supports Georgia’s membership of NATO, Spokesperson of US Secretary of State responded that NATO made the decision during Bucharest Summit that Georgia would become the alliance’s member.
