US 'steadfast' for Georgia's territorial integrity: Clinton

5th July 2010, Comments 0 comments

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that Washington is "steadfast" in its commitment to Georgia's territorial integrity amid disputes with Russia over two rebel regions.

"The United States is steadfast in its commitment to Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity," Clinton said at a joint press conference with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili during a visit to Tbilisi.

Clinton, who earlier criticised Russia's "occupation" of Georgia's rebel regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, also called for Moscow to abide by a ceasefire agreement that stipulates its forces must return to positions held before the 2008 Georgia-Russia war.
