Syria Recognizes Independence Of Abkhazia, South Ossetia. Georgia Suspends Diplomatic Ties With Syria

Donate

Syria has recognized independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and has announced a decision to set up Embassy-level diplomatic relations with the two self-proclaimed states.

“The Republic of South Ossetia and the Syrian Arab Republic declare mutual recognition and the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries at the level of embassies from the date this communique is published,” theSouth Ossetian Foreign Ministry commented on the issue in a statement on its website.

The statement added that both countries are seeking “to establish and develop full-scale political, economic and cultural cooperation.”

Earlier, the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia were recognized by Venezuela, Nicaragua, Nauru and Russia.

Both South Ossetia and Abkhazia are former regions of Georgia, which have separated from the country as a result of local conflicts triggered by ethnic tensions.

In reply to the Syrian move, Georgia has launched a procedure for suspending diplomatic ties with Syria, the country’s Deputy Foreign Minister David Dondua said.

“Georgia has launched the procedure to suspend diplomatic ties with Syria. I would like to note that the international community firmly supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia and the policy of non-recognition of the occupied territories,” Dondua said during a press briefing.

    What a strange thing to do at this time; maybe Georgia has sent a few truck loads of vermin down there .

      Assad is buttering up to Moscow. The Russians control South Ossetia and Abkhasia the same way and for the same reasons they control Donetsk and Luhansk.

  • Michał Hunicz

    Another step of freedom for Abkhazians and South Ossetians, of course being disrupted by the Zionist terrorist scums ruling Georgia.

      Dude, lay off the crack. At the rate you’re going, soon half the world’s population will be considered a “zionist terrorist scum”. Not everyone who has geopolitical differences from you is automatically some secret “zionist”.

        A lot of the guys on this site advocate the ethnic cleansing of Jews and then turn around and compare Israel to the Nazis. These are counterculture rebels, they oppose whatever society around them considers normal and/or acceptable.

        • hamster

          Funny thing is, even many Palestinians and their supporters, who have often suffered greatly from Israeli excesses over the decades would find a lot of this garbage a bit over the top.

          It is usually unemployed, mentally ill, socially awkward marginalized losers with no friends or social life out in the real world that entertain this sort of outlandish vitriol.

          These people literally sit around all day and concoct some of the most incoherent conspiratorial dribble. Like for instance that one photograph where they find some rebel fighter meeting with John Mccain who has some slight facial resemblance to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and suddenly this whole elaborate theory is build that the US is directly meeting with and arming ISIS and that ISIS is really just a bunch of Mossad leaders. ROFL.

          Under ordinary circumstances, it takes anyone with even a below average IQ and a minimum amount of critical thinking to quickly realize that it isn’t bizarre or out of the ordinary at all for some number of people from a relatively small sample of individuals to have similar facial features. But a “lot of guys” on the comments section of this site aren’t exactly very bright to say the least.

            You showed me an example of degenerate leftists and cultural marxists, most of whom are in fact also social rejects and absolutely cringeworthy losers and SJWs who like to play identity politics to divide people, because they are incapable of functioning inside of society. However, it takes a special kind of moron to suggest that these morons are part of some grandiose “jewish conspiracy” of some sort.

            Well no, actually its not really that complicated. It’s just outspoken social rejects like Alex Jones and his followers calling out outspoken social rejects (like “ANTIFA”) on the far left who promote their “body positivity”, “multiculturalism”, “gender fluidity” and other retarded garbage.

            Of course theres no question that radical leftists and degenerate cultural marxists do have a larger presence in traditional media and on liberal college campuses, but then again that’s why traditional media is in decline and why only degenerates go into the social sciences/humanities in universities.

            I’m not really sure what you’re trying to prove to me with your post. Are you suggesting I agree with this particular flavor of social rejects, namely SJWs without a job who live with their parents and wail about how “oppressed” they are? Or that the presence of these morons in writing article in the news media is suggesting that there’s some grand conspiracy to tear western civilization apart from within?

            Both of those are completely false. SJWs are socially inept losers, not footsoldiers of some NWO agenda. Thanks.

          Hitler was a fascist, Mussolini was a fascist, Franco was a fascist, and Netanyahu is a fascist. Zionism is the Jewish version of fascism, so of course people will compare Zionists to Nazis, it’s human nature.

          • JEinCA

            I don’t think Franco was a fascist, I think Franco was a Spanish Patriot and a devout Catholic who didn’t want to see his beloved Spain be ruled by godless communists of the type who seized power in Russia in 1917. I would definitely not blacken his name by calling him a fascist like Mussolini and especially not Hitler whom General Franco despised. I especially wouldn’t put him in the same league as that Zionist butcher Netanyahu.

            yEah, except your argument falls apart because none of this garbage you showed is actually considered “normal”. It is simply an expose of far left cultural marxists, many of whom by the way are also fiercely critical of Israeli Zionism.

            There are tons of degenerate SJWS/morons on the so called “progressive” far left who support “refugees” and retarded shit like “gender fluidity” but similarly malign Israel as an apartheid “Racist” “nazi” ethno state.

            And there are tons of Neocons and Christian conservatives for instance who absolutely abhor all this SJW garbage that you posted pictures of and yet staunchly support Zionist aggression.

            It is your fault you cant get out of a binary way of thinking in your so called “narrative”. The world is not divided between white nationalist Christians with traditional values and disgusting refugee loving ugly fatasses and 3rd wave feminists controlled by so called jewish overlords.

      • Sinbad2

        Yes you are of course right, but the discord in Georgia and Ukraine, and even back to Yugoslavia was all arranged by the USA via various means.
        Now a lot of Americans believe that the USA is controlled by Zionists?
        Neocons and Zionists have the same basic fascist belief structure, so they are like 2 peas in a pod.

      Georgia made by UK covert forces in Russia exactly like Israel and USA.

  • antoun

    good news and georgie= jordanie larbin euroatlantist! and georgie not interrupted relation diplomatic with russia! mdr!

  • Xanatos

    A little overdue. Of course they’ll recognize the Israeli annexation of golan, and the American Kurdish invasion of syrian Mesopotamia. But they were allied with these countries already.

    Turkey will be in a tight spot. They have good relations with Georgia, the baku oil fields reaches turkey by a pipeline running thru Georgia. They really don’t want to see it cut off.

    In the 1800s , as a part of the ottoman Empire,
    Georgia was a majority Muslim country but with western aid they won their independence and ethnically cleansed the country to reassert its Christian culture. Later, shortly after the first world war, they grabbed a piece of turkey called adjaria.

    Turkey has so far abandoned its claim to adjaria. But they might be persuaded by the Russians who dislike Georgia.

    Baku is in azerbaijan, which is controlled by a pro western government. They hate Armenia. The west does not want baku oil exported thru Russia or Iran. That leaves Georgia then turkey as baku’s only path to export to the west. “Flipping” Azerbaijan is an eventual goal of Russia and Iran. The azeris are shia, like Iran. Russia would like access to baku’s oil market too. Flipping Azerbaijan would mean one less Potential NATO ally (NATO has been considering this for years).

    If it flipped it would devastate Georgia’s economy, which profits off the pipeline. Turkey can substitute Georgia with Iran as a path for baku oil to turkey.

      “In the 1800s , as a part of the ottoman Empire, Georgia was a majority Muslim country but with western aid they won their independence and ethnically cleansed the country to reassert its Christian culture.”

      Say what? Georgia didn’t get aby independence with Western aid and it remained Christian. Turks had puppet states there, but not a province de iure.

    • Tudor Miron

      “with western aid they won their independence and ethnically cleansed the country to reassert its Christian culture.”(c) What??? With western help? How about Georgia being part of Russian Empire from 30.12.1800

      • Hard Hawk

        And before that had a very big greek originated population in all his sea side lands in black sea was populated by greeks by the way.

    • hamster

      What the FUCK are you talking about? Do you even read the fucking history? First of all Georgia was NEVER a “muslim majority” country. It was a large christian population ruled over by the Ottomans similar to the way the Greeks and the Romanians were in south-eastern Europe.

      Nor did they ever win their “independence” with western aid.

      Jesus, where the fuck are you reading this garbage?

      • Hard Hawk

        from his khazarian directive blue book?

  • Alex

    Well, georgian pm or president don’t remember which one it was, did bark a few days ago about joining nato, lol.

  • Serious

    Is Assad stupid or what ????

    • Hard Hawk

      obviously, not as much, as you are.

      • Serious

        Assad is stupid. he keeps giving to Russia while Russia gives nothing.

        Assad is too kind and too naive. Russia doesn’t deserve such an ally.

        • Hard Hawk

          that does not alter the fact how stupid and ignorant you are hasbara. You know the story of the whore she suicide when she found out that the rest if the whores was getting paid?

          You are even more reatrd than she was in my book so dont bother me with your reatrdation.

          • Serious

            You are hasbaras like Putin. Go pay taxes to israel you fucking shit. XD.

  • Serious

    When took place the vote about Crimea in UN, does Syria voted for russian crimea or israel ?????

    Syria voted for Russia. israel abstained.

    So, Russia doesn’t deserve such an ally like Syria.

    israel doesn’t deserve such an ally like USA or Russia or Europe.

    That are facts.

    Putin has shown as stupid and traitor he was. He betrayed also Russians who lost even their dignity with such a pathetic “president”.

  • Smaug

    This means Assad is still buttering up to Moscow.

  • JEinCA

    There is no reason that Russia and Georgia should be enemies. They are both Orthodox Christian peoples (as are Ossetians and many Abkhazians as well). If somehow, some way Russia and Georgia bury the bad blood and embrace each other as Orthodox Brothers both nations will be better and stronger for it. It is written in the Holy Scriptures “what is impossible for men is possible with God”.

  • SFC Steven M Barry USA RET

    Under normal circumstances Georgia would amount to exactly nothing. But given that it is one of CIA’s major terrorist training areas, and an Israeli military outpost, it somehow considers itself important enough to flex its stupid.
