​Comment on the so-called dual citizenship agreement with the Tskhinvali occupation regime submitted by the Russian president to the Duma for ratification

"Based on International Law, any agreement between the occupant country and its proxy regimes has no legal effect and is null and void," Mari Narchemashvili, Director General of the Foreign Ministry's Information and Public Relations Department told the Georgian Public Broadcaster.
 
"In gross violation of the principles of international law, the Russian Federation has been using forced passportization of the population in the occupied regions of Georgia since the early 2000s as an illegitimate step and a hybrid tool against Georgia.
 
The international community strongly supports Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity and is unanimous in condemning the illegal passportization of residents in the Russian-occupied territories and the steps taken towards annexation, in general" – Mari  Narchemashvili said.
