Statement of the Embassy of Japan in Georgia on the so-called "parliamentary elections" in Abkhazia

 Japan has consistently supported the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders on the issue of Georgia’s occupied regions of Tskhinvali/South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
 Based on this position, Japan does not recognize the so-called "parliamentary elections" in Abkhazia held on March 12 and 26 as legitimate.
 Japan opposes any attempt to change Georgia’s internationally recognized borders.
