The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution on Georgian IDPs and refugees which, for the first time, was co-sponsored by 44  other nations, during its 73rd session on June 4.

The resolution with the name ‘Status of Internally Displaced Persons and Refugees from Abkhazia, Georgia and the Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia’, condemns the forced demographic changes in Georgia’s Russian-occupied regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) and emphasises the right of all internally displaced persons and refugees, regardless of their ethnicity, to a safe and dignified return to their places of origin.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry wrote the tweet.
