HC Deb 23 March 1922 vol 152 cc700-1W
Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government of the State of Georgia was recognised by His Majesty's Government; whether the present Government of Georgia is recognised; if not, what is the reason; and who is His Majesty's representative in Georgia or other part of the Caucasus, if any?


The independent Republic of Georgia was grantedde jure recognition in January, 1921, but in March of the same year the country was overrun by Armenian and Russian Bolshevists, and the Georgian Government fled. His Majesty's representative was then withdrawn from Trans-Caucasia, since when the Governments of the Trans-Caucasian Republics have refused to accept a British representative. The third and fourth parts of the question do not therefore arise.
