Georgia has severed diplomatic ties with Nicaragua which has recognized the Caucasus country's two breakaway regions as independent states following Russia's suit.
TBILISI, November 29 (RIA Novosti) - Georgia has severed diplomatic ties with Nicaragua which has recognized the Caucasus country's two breakaway regions as independent states following Russia's suit.

The Foreign Ministry said in a news release on Saturday Georgia had suspended the 1994 agreement establishing diplomatic relations with the Central American state and sent a note to its mission at the United Nations.

Tbilisi earlier severed relations with Russia, which recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia after a brief war with Georgia, which had attacked South Ossetia in a bid to retake it under central control in early August.

Abkhazia and South Ossetia have so far only been recognized by Russia and Nicaragua.
