Statement on the 10th Anniversary of the armed conflict in Georgia


Today we commemorate the sad anniversary of the armed conflict in Georgia in 2008.

The conflict between Georgia and Russia has compromised regional stability and security. We deeply deplore the illegal use of force by Russia against Georgia ten years ago. We support the peaceful conflict resolution as the only way to ensure just and lasting solution to the conflict that must be based on full respect for the principles of Georgia’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity recognised by international law.

We deplore and commemorate all loss of life, in particular the civilian casualties and we also remember all refugees and internally displaced persons.

The Czech Republic also confirms its commitment to help Georgia with her Euroatlantic efforts.
