“We remember those who died and those who lost their homes, and regret that little progress has been made on conflict resolution since the signing of the agreements of 12 August 2008 and 8 September 2008.

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Karen Van Vlierberge, Deputy Permanent Representative of Belgium to the United Nations:
“Russia’s recognition of the so-called independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia and the deepening of its security relationship with both de-facto authorities, demonstrates a lack of respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbours and for the rule-based international order. We are extremely concerned about the intensification of the so-called borderization process. These acts prolong the conflict while destabilizing Georgia and the region as a whole.”
