World’s smallest and largest states have recognized Abkhazia

The tiny Republic of Nauru, the world's smallest island nation, in the South Pacific, has entered the spotlight of international politics by recognizing the independence of the former Georgian Republic of Abkhazia.

An agreement to establish diplomatic relations was signed by Abkhazia's Foreign Minister and his Nauruan counterpart in Sukhum.

The Republic of Nauru is the fourth country to recognize Abkhazia's independence, following Russia, Venezuela and Nicaragua.

The Abkhazian Foreign Minister noted that since his country is recognized by the biggest and the smallest nations, the agreement may pave the way for those in the middle.

The Nauruan diplomats have promised that South Ossetia will also be recognized by the island nation.
