"Nauru lucky to live in a very peaceful area. Our country since the second world war was not involved in any of the large international conflicts. And I hope that now the people of South Ossetia and Abkhazia will be able also to live without threats and war. In our view, this is completely realistically be achieved through diplomacy and international efforts. Nauru, in turn, will continue to promote the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by other countries. To do this, other states need to first carefully study the whole situation, "- said the Foreign Minister of Nauru.
"After us, Vanuatu and Tuvalu have recognized these countries are independent. In the coming months, I think, that number had increased. According to very least, to my knowledge, at least two more countries to the real point is very close to, to, most recently, to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia ", — added Kieren Keke.
"We have long studied the history of these countries, the legal framework and the legal arguments of their future independence. Personally, I visited Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and met with local government, slushival their position. But during these trips for me the most important thing was to hear the outlook of people on the streets , to realize what exactly they want. As a result, for me it became quite clear that the residents of Abkhazia and South Ossetia want to be are independent, they believe that they have nothing to do with Georgia, and they do not behold the no historical and legal bases for to remain a part of this country, "- said the diplomat.
The Foreign Minister of Nauru also pointed out that there are some difficulties for cooperation related to the geographical remoteness of countries, but he noted that our homeland has full support in this matter.
The diplomat stressed that for Nauru business with Russia are very necessary. Because, in his words, "there is a lot of international topics that still affect such small countries like Nauru, as other countries in the Asia-Pacific region."
"Overall I am very pleased with the way our business in the last two or three years. They came out at a very high level, have become more open and friendly. And I think it's good for both countries," — said Kieren Keke.
He identified three main areas of cooperation between the Russian Federation and Nauru
"In-1's, is an international level. We have a dialogue at the United Nations on many issues. Way, not only with Russia, and other countries of the organization, and they are almost 200. We have a lack of cooperation between the Russian Federation and the same offices Nauru to the United Nations in New York. We discuss everything — from climate change to the configuration of any particular issues relating to international and internal conflicts in different countries of the world.
In-2, we interact in the Asia-Pacific region. Nauru is playing a major role in the promotion of the Russian Federation with other Asia-Pacific countries. This confirms the fact that Nauru in the past year in New York, co-chaired the meeting with the Russian Federation on the Pacific Rim countries. This fall we will hold another such forum. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at first this year and visited our region, arrived with a large delegation of Russian officials.
Apart from this, Nauru helping Russia in establishing cooperation with the countries of the Pacific Islands Forum. All this is very basic steps to enhance cooperation between Moscow and Asian Pacific countries.
B-3, we are having a two-way dialogue. Here the main topic of discussion is fishing. This is one of the main sectors of the economy of Nauru, and we are very interested in cooperating with the Russian fishing organizations for mutual benefit services. Apart from this, there are a number of humanitarian and other areas in which we work together with the Government of the Russian Federation ", — said Keke.
