In response to such statement Abkhazian side proposes the US State Department to give better explanation for the meaning of the words such as “occupied Georgian territories” and “inflexible support of Georgian integrity”, by this to ground its position more clearly since such statement provokes aggressive aspiration of Georgia to restore its “territorial integrity” by force with more open US support.
Speaking of the firm intention to support Georgia United States also should understand that Abkhazia is strictly adherent to strengthening its independence and democracy for the sake of peace and stability in entire region.
No other country in the world has been placing such a big number of military bases as the US has. In this case, following Mrs Clinton’s position means that Iraq, Afghanistan, Columbia, Japan, Korea, Philippines and European countries such as Portugal, Netherlands, Iceland, Greece, Germany, Italy and Kosovo with troops of many thousands are territories occupied by the United States.
The Government of Abkhazia is concerned with such unambiguous statement by the Head of the US State Department and has to modify its position on the Geneva Discussions.
