US Department of State: Washington supports Georgia’s membership in NATO and the peaceful resolution of the conflict on its territory

First Deputy Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said during talks with Georgian Foreign Minister Georgy Kvirikashvili that Washington supports a peaceful settlement of the Georgian conflict and calls on the Russian Federation to fulfill its obligations to 2008 of the year.




“We continue to urge Russia to fulfill its obligations in accordance with the cease-fire agreement, including the withdrawal of all forces to pre-conflict positions and the unhindered admission of humanitarian aid. We welcome Georgia’s restrained reaction to provocations on the administrative border and attempts to establish contact with the residents of the occupied territories. We also encourage and fully support reconciliation efforts, which should lead to a peaceful and just resolution of the conflict, ”RIA "News".

"Occupied territories" in Washington consider South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which declared independence after the invasion of the Georgian army and the operation of the Russian armed forces to force Georgia to peace in 2008 year.

In addition, Blinken noted that the US supports Georgia’s potential accession to NATO.

“We support the commitment given in Bucharest that Georgia will become a member of NATO, and we continue to firmly support its hopes in this direction,” he emphasized.

In 2008, a NATO summit was held in Bucharest, during which commitments were made to admit Georgia and Ukraine to the North Atlantic Alliance without specifying specific dates.

Blinken did not comment on the possible membership of Ukraine. Earlier, Elizabeth Trudeau, the representative of the US State Department, left the answer to a similar question.

“The consensus alliance invites new members when they are ready and able to contribute to the security of the North Atlantic region. Any decision on NATO membership is taken by Ukraine and the members of the alliance, and I will not speculate about the country's readiness before it makes a formal application, ”she said during a press conference.

        This is a diplomatic demarche that has nothing to do with real politics. Perhaps yes - because of Syria.
        Hohland - to a lesser extent.
        I understand, of course, that NATO wants to have Georgia as its member, but the UN and the USA and NATO and the CSTO recognized Georgia as an aggressor. Stsukoshvili is wanted in Georgia as a war criminal. Russia’s peacekeeping mission was carried out before the conflict, so a small contingent stands there precisely in the “pre-conflict” position.

          We continue to urge Russia to fulfill its obligations

          First:
          Is NATO’s East East Accord an International Obligation?

          And the second:
          South Ossetia and Abkhazia as part of the Russian Federation will essentially be the solution to all territorial disputes, and the recognition of "occupation" territories as territories of the Russian Federation.

          Otherwise, Georgia will be admitted to NATO, as an exception.

            South Ossetia will definitely be part of the Russian Federation, but Abkhazia will most likely be our protectorate, which will block Georgia’s accession to NATO. The key word in the mattress's speech is POTENTIAL joining. Those if you solve your problems, then we will take you to NATO. But Georgia can solve them only in one way - to abandon South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which it will never do, since in the foreseeable future the entry of Georgians into NATO is unlikely.

        I think you should not pay attention to all sorts of different charters, they change them as soon as they are profitable. But the Georgians should prevent a step in the kirdyk nature-economy.

    They will not accept Georgia into NATO until the issue of the unrecognized republics is finally resolved, and this decision will not be recognized by all parties. In the foreseeable future, they cannot afford to have a potential source of conflict with the Russian Federation on the territory of the alliance.
    Until then, all these statements are nothing more than psychological pressure on opponents.

    ё

    The familiar and deceitful rhetoric of the US State Department.

    For whom is it primarily pronounced? .... naturally not for RUSSIA ..... because we all know the value of the words of the US Secretary of State ... hypocrites and liars.

    You insinuated the Georgians during the OLYMPIAD when guns should not shoot and people die ... our peacekeepers in the conflict zone died through your fault and the fault of your chewing tie.

    Now do not be offended ... you have no faith and all your calls are empty words for us.

      What kind of conflict on the territory of Georgia is?

      There is a conflict. Abkhazia and South Ossetia are recognized by Russia and a number of countries as independent states. But Georgia and the West consider them to be Georgian territories. This is the essence of the conflict. According to the NATO charter, a state cannot become a member of NATO if there is an unresolved territorial dispute or conflict. Therefore, there are only two ways. First, Georgia recognizes Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent, thus finally abandoning these territories, respectively, the conflict is settled and you can join NATO. The second - NATO is changing its charter and allowing state-members with territorial disputes to join its ranks. And the first and second option is not real now and in the near future.
      The bottom line is Georgia and Ukraine, will not be members of NATO. What is written in the article is just a cookie for the Georgians, so as not to cry.
      PS, Theoretically, there is a third option - to capture South Ossetia and Abkhazia, cut out the population and show peace in the territory, but who will allow them?

    The Chechens had a tradition of stealing the Georgian princes. Russian Emperors bought them for not frail grandmothers with gold.
    It is necessary for Kadyrov to revive the tradition, replenishing the budget of the republic, by Georgian politicians.
    Maybe Fadington will get tired of buying them out and they, like our Emperors, will move them away from the borders of Chechnya, not only to Ukraine, but deeper into America.
    It would be necessary to resolve the issue with Adjara.

    Excuse me, who needed humanitarian assistance? Personally, I have not heard from Abkhazia and Ossetia about the plight and requests for such assistance. Probably it is necessary for Georgia itself in the form of military instructors, "non-lethal weapons" and other things.
