Statement of the MFA on the Signing of a "Treaty" between Russia and Georgia's South Ossetia Region


The Czech Republic denounces the signing of the so called “Treaty on Alliance and Integration“ by the Russian Federation and Georgia’s breakaway region of South Ossetia on March 18, 2015, as a step further complicating the efforts to stabilize the security situation in the region.

This move violates the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia and contravenes the basic principles of international law, as well as the commitments of the Russian Federation under international law. The timing of the signing on the day of Geneva International Discussions radically complicated the atmosphere at these talks.

The Czech Republic reiterates its full and consistent support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders. We urge Russia to reciprocate Georgia’s unilateral public pledge not to use force and underline the pressing need for comprehensive international security arrangements enhancing the stability in this region.
