Two more countries can recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South OssetiaThe Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Finance of the island state of Nauru Kiren Keke during his visit to Moscow said that by the end of 2012, two more states of the Asia-Pacific region could recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.


"Nauru was lucky to live in a very peaceful region. Our country has not been involved in any of the major international conflicts since World War II. And I hope that now the people of South Ossetia and Abkhazia will also be able to live without threats and wars. In our opinion, This is realistic to achieve with the help of diplomacy and international efforts. Nauru, in turn, will continue to promote the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by other countries. For this, other states must first of all carefully examine the whole situation, "said the head of the foreign ministry of Nauru.

"After us, Vanuatu and Tuvalu recognized these countries as independent. In the coming months, I think, the number of such states will increase. At least, according to my data, at least two more countries are very close to recognizing independence in the very near future Abkhazia and South Ossetia ", - added Kiren Keke.

"We studied for a long time history these countries, the legal framework and legal arguments for their future independence. I personally visited Abkhazia and South Ossetia, met with the local government, listened to their position. But during these trips, the most important thing for me was to hear the opinions of people on the streets, to understand exactly what they themselves wanted. As a result, it became absolutely clear to me that the residents of Abkhazia and South Ossetia want to be independent, they believe that they have nothing in common with Georgia, and they do not see any historical and legal basis for remaining a part of this state ", - said the diplomat.

The head of the foreign affairs agency of Nauru also pointed out that there are certain difficulties for cooperation related to the geographic remoteness of the states, but he noted that Russia provides full support in this matter.

The diplomat stressed that relations with Russia are extremely important for Nauru. As, according to him, "there are many international themes that still have an impact on such small countries as Nauru, as well as on other states of the Asia-Pacific region."

"In general, I am very pleased with the development of our relations in the last two or three years. They have reached a very high level, become more open, friendly. And I think this benefits both countries," said Kiren Keke.

He identified three main areas of cooperation between Russia and Nauru:

“Firstly, this is an international level. We are conducting a dialogue on the UN platform on many issues. By the way, not only with the Russian Federation, but also with other countries of the organization, and there are almost 200. We have established cooperation between the permanent missions of the Russian Federation and Nauru at the UN in New York. We discuss everything from climate change to some specific issues related to international and internal conflicts in various countries of the world.

Secondly, we interact in the Asia-Pacific region. Nauru plays a key role in the interaction of Russia with other countries of the Asia-Pacific region. This confirms the fact that Nauru last year in New York co-chaired the Russian Federation at the meeting of the APR states. This fall we will hold another such forum. Earlier this year, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also visited our region, arriving with a large delegation of Russian officials.

In addition, Nauru helps the Russian Federation in establishing cooperation with the Pacific Islands Forum countries. All these are very important steps in expanding Moscow’s cooperation with the APR states.

Thirdly, we have a bilateral dialogue. Here the key topic of discussion is fishing. This is one of the main sectors of the Nauru economy, and we are very interested in working with Russian fishing organizations to achieve mutual benefits. In addition, there are a number of humanitarian and other areas in which we work together with the government of the Russian Federation, "Keke said.

Is the Republic of Nauru an island state on a coral island of the same name in the western Pacific Ocean with an area of ​​21,3 km? and the population of 11,3 is thousands of people. Nauru’s independence was proclaimed in 1968 year.

The state is part of the Commonwealth of Nations. 14 September 1999 The Republic of Nauru was admitted to the UN. Nauru is also a member of the South Pacific Commission and the Pacific Islands Forum.

In December 2009, the Republic of Nauru became the fourth country in the world to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, after Russia, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

    Vanuatu and Tuvalu - never heard of these countries. Is it sad to me alone that only microscopic islands, and not real world leaders, recognize the independence of the countries under the wing of Russia?

      Water sharpens the stone, at one time Afghanistan was also the first to recognize the Soviet Republic, and it was that very little pebble that brought down an avalanche.

        The diplomat emphasized that relations with Russia are extremely important for Nauru.

        I am a bad translator of Nauru, but I feel that they needed something from us. This is not without reason.

        Googled, clarified something. Reliance on Australia, shitty relations with China. It is clear in general. Australians are also cool about China’s bailouts, so the brave guys from Nauru decided to play it safe and nourish with us.

        One pity ... They have such a small island, you can’t even beat the base. well, nothing will be friends like that ...

        I compared Afghanistan and some gods forgotten with the microscopic area and population of the island.))))
        Compare Kosovo how many countries both Abkhazia and South Ossetia recognized, and then think about how justifiably shouting Russia cooler than America will tear these Amers and all that. Here is the whole power of today's Russia with microscopic islands with a population less than in my area in St. Petersburg))

    Laughter is laughter, but we actually shouldn't care who admits and who doesn't. All these microscopic states recognize these in order to conclude cooperation with Russia on other issues. The same America hollows everyone and everything because everyone knows that the United States is the most powerful country on the planet. And for whom there is power, for that and the truth. This is what we should do. And I congratulate the rodents on another significant anniversary of the "888" war, when the US used Georgian troops to test the ability of the Russian Army to operate in wartime.

    Yes, I also think so, it is not important whether they heard about them or did not hear, the question is time and critical mass, as they say a drop wears away a stone.

    There are several dwarf states in the region that, in exchange for money, trade various kinds of confessions. However, just as quickly they are taken back

    Give me the address, I'll send the 201st laptop. All the same, this is a manifestation of courage, it must be appreciated. Even our "friend", dad Lukashenka, trukhanul and still feeds with promises. Also, Armenia, Cuba, Iran and others could well recognize without risking anything.

      Armenia does not want to quarrel with the West and the Diaspora abroad. Iran is on its own mind. Cuba was simply offended by the sharp curtailment of relations in the 90s and sluggish cooperation now. And in general, power is respected in international affairs. If Russia had rigidly and clearly defined and defended its own interests, the process of recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia would have developed.

    In science, certain judgments have been made about the significance of recognition for the new state, and in international practice, various legal decisions reflecting one or another doctrine of recognition.

    Historically, there have been two theories of recognition - declarative and constitutive.

    The declarative theory was based on the fact that the state has been a subject of international law since its inception. Recognition does not endow the state with international legal personality, but merely states such legal personality and facilitates the entry of the new state into the system of interstate relations.

    The constitutional theory was based on the opposite postulate, according to which the emergence of a state is not tantamount to the emergence of a subject of international law; it becomes such only after receiving recognition from other states. This theory made the international legal personality of a state dependent on its recognition by other states. The unrecognized state was, as it were, outside of international communication due to the impossibility of realizing its basic rights and obligations, and establishing stable interstate relations. The recognition thus "constituted" the state as a subject of international law. This theory justified arbitrariness and interference in the internal affairs of the newly emerging states.
    Recognition allows the state to use its fundamental rights to the fullest extent and bear fundamental responsibilities, participate in the creation and enforcement of international legal norms. Recognition is carried out within the framework of the principles of international law. In particular, the principle of cooperation requires the development of stable relations from the newly emerged and existing states, which is impossible without recognition.
