The article discusses the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by the Russia Federation following an armed conflict with Georgia. The two countries have also been recognized by Nicaragua, Venezuela and Nauru. The United Nations (UN) Security Council, in its resolutions, emphasized that its members should respect the territorial integrity of Georgia, resulting in the implication that South Ossetia and Abkhazia cannot apply for membership of the UN. An accord was signed by Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia to determine their commitment to peace talks.
