Nicaragua salutes new states in Caucasus

Posted by Kris Roman on September 9, 2008

The Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has officially recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. It means the Central American country is the first country after Russia to formally regard the two republics as autonomous states.
Nicaragua gives “full recognition” to the “sister” republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as “new members of the community of independent nations of the world, whom we welcome,” Nicaragua’s Foreign Ministry quoted the presidential decree.

The president first expressed his support for Moscow’s stance earlier this week. Now the decree has been signed, Nicaragua’s Foreign Ministry said the country would immediately establish ties with Sukhum and Tskhinval and eventually send ambassadors.

Upon hearing the news, people spontaneously gathered in the capitals of both republics. They shot in the air, waved their respective flags alongside Russian flags, beeped car horns, and shouted “Recognized! Recognized!”

The residents of Tskhinvali and Sukhumi hugged and congratulated each other, chanting “We’re free!” Fireworks were also let off.

US-maffia-state Kosovo refuses to back sovereignty for S.Ossetia, Abkhazia

Posted by Kris Roman on August 28, 2008

The fact that Kosovo’s independence has been acknowledged by some 50 countries does not justify Russia’s decision to recognize Georgia’s breakaway regions, the Kosovan president said.

“We have always said and will continue to insist that Kosovo is a special case which cannot be treated as a precedent for other conflict zones, territories and regions,” Fatmir Sejdiu said in Pristina late on Tuesday.

Sejdiu said Kosovo was on the side of “the leading world powers” with regard to South Ossetia and Abkhazia. He also said the recognition of the two separatist regions by Russia on Tuesday would not prevent more countries from backing Kosovo’s sovereignty.
