Fillion demands international discussion on Abkhazia, South Ossetia recognition

François Fillon, the Prime Minister of France, announced in the Russian resort of Sochi on September 22 that the recognition of Georgia's breakaway regions by Russia would become the subject of international discussion in the future. Mr. Fillon said special meetings and forums would be dedicated to Russia’s unilateral recognition of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region.
According to the French Prime Minister, at present the goal of the international society was to see a complete pullout of the Russian Army from Georgia. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, responding, said that Russia was determined to meet the commitments laid down in the ceasefire agreements.
