BELGIUM–(ENEWSPF)–14 November 2011. The following statement is attributed to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen:
NATO does not recognise the elections held on November 13 in the Georgian region of South Ossetia.
The holding of such elections does not contribute to a peaceful and lasting settlement of the situation in Georgia. The Alliance reiterates its full support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognised borders.
