EEAS Spokesperson Peter Stano’s comments on Lukashenko’s visit to Georgian breakaway region of Abkhazia
The EU strongly condemns the visit of Alexander Lukashenko to the Georgian breakaway region of Abkhazia. Apart from the fact, that Lukashenko lacks any legitimacy to act as a head of State, this visit was undertaken without the consent of the government of Georgia, which is the only legitimate authority over the region of Abkhazia.
This visit violates Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and constitutes a blatant violation of international law.
The EU reaffirms its steadfast support for Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty within its internationally recognised borders.
