U.S. calls Putin visit to Georgia separatist region 'inappropriate'

Putin vows continued Russian support for Georgia's rebel Abkhazia

Abkhazia slams Georgian officials for 'nervous' response to Putin's visit

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation rebuked Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday for visiting the breakaway Georgian region of Abkhazia on the ninth anniversary of a brief war over the territory and another disputed region, South Ossetia. According to him, promising that Georgia would one day become a member of the alliance alarmed Moscow and gave false encouragement to the Georgian government.

"The most important thing is that we have entirely special relations with Abkhazia", news agencies reported Putin as saying as he met with Khajimba in the Black Sea resort of Pitsunda. We safeguard the security and independence of Abkhazia. "I am sure that this will continue in the future".

"The United States fully supports Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders and rejects Russia's recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia", Nauert's statement said.

Russian president visits Abkhazia on anniversary of brief war over the territory.

State's condemnation did not stop Putin from expressing his commitment to building a joint military contingent with Abkhazia's separatist administration's leader Raul Khadzhimba during his visit.
