US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned the Russian occupation of Georgia in his speech at the Munich Security Conference yesterday.
More than 30 years since the fall of the wall, countries that don’t respect sovereignty still threaten us. Some nations still desire empire. Let’s talk about territorial integrity, or rather, those nations that have contempt for it. Russia has seized Crimea and parts of Eastern Ukraine and Georgia”, Pompeo stated.
Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani thanked Pompeo for his support to Georgia on Twitter.
