US pledges deepening support to Georgia, calls on Russia to withdraw occupying military

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pledged deeper security and economic support to Georgia, whilst calling on Russia to withdraw its forces from the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in accordance to a 2008 ceasefire agreement.

“The United States unequivocally condemns Russia’s occupation on Georgian soil. Russia’s forcible invasion of Georgia is a clear violation of international peace and security,” said the Secretary of State.

Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said American support for peaceful resolution to Russia’s presence in Georgia “is of highest importance to our country and regional stability,” reports Reuters.
