Nauru denies diplomatic recognition for aid money

ABC RADIO AUSTRALIA Updated December 24, 2009 17:18:03

Nauru denies it's recognised two breakaway republics in the Caucusus in exchange for aid from Russia. Nauru has recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which broke away from Georgia in the wake of Russian invasion of Georgia last August. Russia backs the two territories, but so far only Venezuela and Nicaragua have joined it in recognising their independence. Nauru's finance minister, Kieran Keke, insists that Nauru has joined them simply because the two republics deserve to have their independence acknowledged, and not because of any promise of Russian money for the tiny Pacific island.
