NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen in Berlin, October 27, 2011

From Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO:  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.
