WORLD BRIEFING / GEORGIA

Ties severed with Nicaragua

November 30, 2008|Times Wire Services

Georgia says it is cutting diplomatic relations with Nicaragua after the Central American nation recognized the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

Nicaragua is the only country other than Russia to have recognized the regions as independent nations.

There was no immediate comment from Nicaragua.

Georgia and Russia fought a war in August after Georgia attacked South Ossetia. Russia has unsuccessfully pushed for other nations to recognize the two breakaway regions, often citing Kosovo as a precedent.
