U.S. House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee passed unanimously a bipartisan Resolution (H.Res.660) in support of Georgia’s Territorial Integrity

As the next step, the Resolution will be put on voting at the Plenary Session of the U.S. House of Representatives in autumn 2016. The Resolution will need support of the majority in order to be passed.

The Resolution led by Co-Chairs of the U.S. House Georgia Caucus – Ted Poe (R-Texas) and Gerald Connolly (D-Virginia) has a bipartisan support. It is co-sponsored by 31 members – both Republican and Democratic members of the House of Representatives.

The Resolution is one of the most important reflections of the U.S.’s backing on Georgia and its territorial integrity, which reiterates high level of the U.S.’s political support towards Georgia.

The resolution urges the U.S. Government to unequivocally support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia and carry on the non-recognition policy similar to that successfully implemented vis-à-vis the Baltic States – namely, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Since the very first day of the Soviet occupation of the Baltic States, the U.S. never recognized them as parts of the USSR.

According to the resolution, the United States will not recognize the de jure or de facto control of the Russian Federation over any part of Georgia, its airspace, or its territorial waters, including Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, under any circumstances.

The Resolution condemns the military intervention and occupation of Georgia by the Russian Federation and its continuous illegal activities along the occupation line in Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia. It calls upon the Russian Federation to withdraw its recognition of Georgia’s territories of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia as independent countries, to refrain from acts and policies that undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia, and to take steps to fulfill all the terms and conditions of the August 12, 2008 Ceasefire Agreement between Georgia and the Russian Federation. The Resolution stresses the necessity of progress on core issues within the Geneva International Discussions.

The Resolution urges the U.S. Administration to deepen cooperation with Georgia in all areas of the U.S.-Georgia Charter on Strategic Partnership, including Georgia’s advancement towards Euro-Atlantic integration. It urges the U.S. Administration to place emphasis on enhancing Georgia’s security through joint military trainings and providing self-defensive capabilities in order to enhance Georgia’s independent statehood and national sovereignty. The Resolution stresses that a free, united, democratic, and sovereign Georgia is in the long-term interest of the U.S. as it promotes peace and stability in the region.
