Foreign Ministry announcement


Estonia does not recognise the presidential elections held in Abkhazia in Georgia on the 26th of August, as they contradict the principles of territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia and therefore are not legitimate.

Estonia fully shares the position, as stated by the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton that the European Union reiterates its support to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia, as recognised by international law.

In order to assure the security and stability in the region, it is necessary to continue with the Geneva International Discussions and European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia.
